Degenerate Art tells the story of Hitler's odd connection to important German art. In 1937, Hitler orchestrated an exhibition of paintings, gathering those he considered to be "degenerate art" or examples of what he thought was wrong with German culture. But his plan backfired when the artists he chose to criticize became some of the most respected of the 20th century. Artists who received Hitler's disdain include Max Beckmann, Emil Nolde, Oscar Kokoschka, Otto Dix, and Max Ernst.
