At the beginning of the 20th century some artists are deeply attached to their native country. They depict Luxembourg landscapes with a strong preference for the Moselle.
After the First World War, some artists, who all studied in Munich, free themselves not only from 19th century academicism, but also from Impressionism. Following the Quarrel of the Ancients and the Moderns, the Salons de la Sécession (1927-29) break with the traditionalists of the Cercle Artistique de Luxembourg (C.A.L.), foundet in 1893.
The expressionist painter Joseph Kutter (1894-1941) is the leading figure behind this Luxembourg Secession. Other members are Jean Schaack (1895-1959), Jean Noerdinger (1895-1963), Harry Rabinger (1895-1966), Auguste Trémont (1892-1980), Claus Cito (1882-1965) and Nico Klopp (1894-1930).
