In the early years of the 20th Century, artists and designers in France and Germany experimented with new ways of looking at the world that would lead to the development of the Modernist Style. In his third lecture of this series, Erik Kramvik discusses some of the key milestones of the period that would eventually change the world.
Erik is a charter member of Artistic License, devoting the past 35 years to the restoration and rehabilitation of period homes. He also explores the world in an effort to photographically document the great achievements in architecture and design.
