A good example of proto-Nazi pseudo scholarship, seeing (predictably) that race is reflected in the quality of artistry. Most definitely a precursor to the Nazi exhibition "Entartete Kunst" of a decade later, particularly in juxtaposing "modernist" artists of the German expressionistic school with mongoloid and other handicapped persons.It even attacks the modern school of achitecture.
