The lighthouse art cubist rendition, L’ Art Degenere d’phare of Crooked River Lighthouse challenges traditional perceptions of lighthouses.
The painting, L’ Art Degenere d’phare (Lighthouse Degenerate Art) honors the Cubists artists whose works were banned by the Nazis of World War II and displayed in the Degenerate Art Exhibit. The works of art were formerly exhibited in German Museums.
The Crooked River Lighthouse overlooks the Gulf of Mexico and is situated next to Camp Jordan Museum. Amphibious soldiers of World War II were trained at Camp Jordan. The painting also pays tribute to Allied soldiers who rescued stolen works of art from Nazis.
