"An indispensable anthology that immediately renders its predecessors obsolete. With its gathering of public and private documents, it carries us through the rise and fall of one of the great upheavals of modern art."--Robert Rosenblum, New York University "These essays, including many previously unavailable in English, are rich with startling new insights into the German Expressionist psyche. Elucidating the artists' view of government, the role of women in modern society, and their own ambivalence about the effectiveness of abstract art, this anthology is essential reading for all scholars and students of twentieth-century art."--Joan Marter, author ofAlexander CalderLong, Rose-Carol W. is the author of 'German Expressionism Documents from the End of the Wilhelmine Empire to the Rise of National Socialism', published 1995 under ISBN 9780520202641 and ISBN 0520202643.
