Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal

From the 1940 German occupation of Paris until the 1944 liberation, the French art world suffered the horrors of art censorship. Remarkably, the xenophobic Vichy government, headed by Marshall Petain in the free zone, became a haven for Jewish and "foreign" artists that Hitler stigmatized as "Judeo-Marxist-decadent." Cone, a contemporary art researcher, focuses on the enormous artistic output that occurred on both sides of the armistice line despite the repressive situation. She compares "Avengers of Decadence"--those who remained in Paris, collaborated with the Nazis, and supported traditional, moderate artistic values--with "Scapegoats of Decadence," refugee artists who resisted dictatorship but whose creativity prevailed amid hardships and isolation. Picasso's unique position in occupied Paris is also explored. A significant, insightful, scholarly study recommended for art museum and academic libraries.
