This chapter analyses the ways the Allies tried to have an impact on the reception of German fine arts and how art was used as a means to spread ideologies. The Allies appealed to all arts to spread their ideals. The Allied cultural and artistic policies in Germany is a growing research field that has been developed especially after the German reunification. The Allies considered art one of the best ways to get rid of Nazism and to establish democracy in Germany. During the first years of the post-war era, the Allies seemed to grant a certain freedom to artists, who could apparently follow their own style without any stylistic obligation towards the occupying state. At the very first moment after the collapse of the Nazi regime, the Allies had primarily shown artists who had been defamed by the Nazis in exhibitions, with the aim of rehabilitating them.
