Very Good in Very Good jacket. Book Hard bound in dust jacket. Published in association with Yale University. Some minor wear to dust jacket that shows one small tear to upper spine edge, otherwise in very good condition. The development of modern art complemented by biographies on the artists represented in the museum's collection. Emphasis is placed upon the American reception to their work, a previously little-explored area in this field. In this context, the role of museums, art dealers, patrons and critics are examined as well. Gustav Klimt, Egon Schiele, Oskar Kokoschka, and artists of the Wiener Werkstätte are among the featured artists. Leading figures, such as Max Beckmann, Peter Behrens, Otto Dix, Vasily Kandinsky, Paul Klee, and Ludwig Mies van der Rohe are also examined in the context of key movements in Germany such as the Brücke, the Blaue Reiter, Neue Sachlichkeit, and the Bauhaus.
