The urban way of still life
Sean Rose takes us on a trip to "Magical City", a fascinating exhibition in Lille dealing with the influence of the modern city on the visual arts between 1913 and 1950. Through painting, photography and cinema, the exhibition focuses on three major cities: New York, Berlin and Paris. From skyscrapers and bridges to trams and traffic, "Magical City" shows how the new urban landscape has influenced visual artists.
