Peace and War: 1900-1940

Following the Government announcement yesterday, museums and galleries in Cambridge will be closed to the public as part of a period of national/local restrictions. So, with great sadness, we will not be able to reopen as planned on 2 January 2021.

Between 1900 and 1940, France was at the heart of artistic innovation in Europe, and it gave the world the Art Nouveau and Art Deco styles. France was also locked into a struggle for supremacy with Germany in two World Wars. Medals from France and Germany powerfully illustrate this conflict, and the arts of peace.
