Dietmar Elger studied history, art history, and literature at Hamburg University.

German Expressionists were uneasy and angry

German Expressionists were uneasy and angry. Anti-imperialist, they were dispersed, shattered, and depleted by the horrors of the First World War, and rallied their efforts only to be officially erased by the Nazi Degenerate Art exhibition of 1937. Finding a critical calm amid the frenzy of color and distortion, the book distills Expressionism’s leading collectives, Die Br& 252;cke and Der Blaue Reiter, as well as its regional characteristics across its Berlin and Munich hubs, and its North German, Rheinland, and Viennese variants.

Expressionism, a German intuition, 1905-1920. translated from the German by Joachim Neugroschel. 9. "Addenda": p. inserted. Catalog of an exhibition held at the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, Nov. 14, 1980-Jan. 18, 1981; San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, Feb. 19-Apr.

In six chapters -- The Brücke Group of Artists, Northern German Expressionism, The Blaue Reiter, Rhenish Expressionism, The City and Expressionism in Vienna -- this publication deals with a specifically German artistic revolution, a phenomenon that has quite accurately been described as "the most significant German contribution to 20th century European art." Beside a number of famous names, including Beckmann, Heckel, Kandinsky, Kirchner, Kokoschka, Macke, Marc, Mueller, Nolde, Schiele, and Schmidt-Rottluff, the author also introduces several lesser-known artists, such as Campendonk, Felixmüller, Meidner, Morgner, Münter, and von Werefkin.

I really hate art books that are all writing, too few images, and this is a classic one of those. Prof. Elger waxes on (and on) about the meaning of the paintings but talks so little about formalistic issues (he is obiviously not a painter nor cares much about the art of painting). I suppose what he says is of interest to some, but as an artist I cared very little for the book.

Picture books are nice... but if you want some information too, it'll have to be some text in it, otherwise you might as well buy a postcardbook instead... It is beyond my comprehension that someone here critisizes a book for providing information instead of images only, and this you find plenty in here.
