Abstract:

"From 1933 to 1940, as the National Socialists assumed control of Germany and its art world, scores of dissenting artist and critics fled the Reich. Though the United States was often thought to be the haven of choice for these exiles, the greatest concentration of artists and critics first relocated to the nearby democratic capitals of Paris, Prague, and London. Through press and archival research, Modern German Art for Thirties Paris, Prague, and London examines the public activities of the four exile artists' groups and demonstrates the obstacles and competition each met trying to educate local and international audiences about recent German art.

The story situates the artistic and critical endeavors of the exiles amid the turbulent international political events that led to World War II." "Modern German Art for Thirties Paris, Prague, and London will be of interest to scholars interested in the history of art, cultural historians and theorists, along with Germanists and historians dedicated to the study of interwar Europe, the Third Reich, and exiled populations."--Jacket.
