The anguish, frustration, and desperate experimentation which characterized German society in the wake of its bitter defeat in World War I and during the ensuing revolution are nowhere more apparent than in the graphic posters, prints, and book and periodical illustrations produced by the German Expressionist artists who, between 1918 and 1922, joined the effort to reshape society. In a scholarly and sympathetic study enhanced by over 100 illustrations, art historian Ida Rigby analyzes these artists' attempts to integrate art into the movement for social reform, and their eventual disillusioned withdrawal into realism. Although such well known artists as Kąuathe Kollwitz, George Grosz, and Otto Dix are given full consideration, an important feature of this book is the attention it pays to the minor figures who, many argue, were the most characteristic representatives of the Expressionist movement. Originally published in 1987.
