This selection of works from AMoA's permanent collection represents the later years of Theo Tobiasse's prolific and innovative career. As a teenager living in Paris, Tobiasse and his family were forced into hiding during the city's Nazi occupation from 1942 - 1944. Tobiasse’s work -- influenced by surrealism, expressionism and modern primitivism -- explores themes of mythology, biblical stories, exile and his own past. All of these elements combined to present rich metaphors for the 20th century.
