Deutsche Kunst und entartete "Kunst"; Kunstwerk und Zerrbild als Spiegel der Weltanschauung

Munich: Deutscher Volksverlag, 1938. First edition. Original Cloth. Small octavo (6 x 8.5). pp. 80. 32 pages of introductory text followed by 50 pages of examples of "decadent" art juxtaposed to the corresponding "German" (i.e. politically correct) art. Very Good, mild ex -library copy. Item #983

An important period piece, showing the collision of Nazi "aesthetics" and avant garde sensibilities. Juxtapositions showing the square-jawed teutonic hero versus a George Grosz or Otto Dix expressionistic depiction of a World War One cripple were only too welcome to the Nazi sensibilities. A classic period piece.

Price: $160.00
