In the early 20th century, Paris became the Magnetic Center for the Arts. It was a laboratory of experiments and innovation. It produced extraordinary artists, musicians, sculptors, and writers who lead the way to Modernism. Picasso and Braque created an enviable storm with their Cubist Art. In literature, “The Lost Generation” made up of Gertrude Stein, Ernest Hemingway, F. Scott Fitzgerald and others revolutionized literature by using a “Stream of Conciseness” style of writing. The Ballets Russes’ principle figures, Sergei Diaghilev, Vaslav Nijinsky and Igor Stravinsky, developed exciting ideas for the Theater World.
