The designers, architects, and artists of the middle of the 20th century onward created the material expression of how the world was fundamentally changed after WWII. Charles and Ray Eames, George Nakashima, Le Corbusier, Harry Bertoia, Miles Baughman, Arne Jacobsen - the work of these and many more both defined their era and became instant, timeless classics. The Leland Little Modern Art & Design Department showcases iconic pieces from this period of accelerating innovation that propelled us into the 21st century.
