Swell to Great

This piece is about the influence World War II had on the painters who formed the School of Fantastic Realism in Vienna shortly after 1945. A violin has been used as a focal point to represent Vienna, the world capital of music.

The violin is collaged in images of Sigmund Freud, as he had to flee Vienna in 1938 to save his family and himself from Nazi persecution. Freud’s controversial philosophies were also influencing the artists at that time. Image of Sigmund Freud is courtesy of The Freud Museum London.
