This book may well have been titled: The Golden Age of German Culture. This book gives a very, very full view of early twentieth entury German culture. One pleasant surprise was a section on Nietzsche (You really must read Thus Spoke Zarathustra...)and his influence during that time. Munch did a painting of him and Otto Dix a bust. But anyway... If you love E. L. Kirchner or Otto Dix, this is your book. The plates cover Kirchner excellently (They include the famous 1913 Berlin Street Scene) despite the fact the they omit earlier works like Street (1907). Kandinsky and Der Blaue Reiter, however, were not covered so well, but Kandinsky's phenomenal Improvisation 30 (Cannons) is included. Otherwise there were only two other Kandinsky paintings. This book is supremely interesting and does not have eye-strained print. As a proof of this I read it with pink eye without a problem. Buy this book.

I purchased this book for a family member with an interest in the German Expressionist artist movement. He was delighted with this book and has spent countless hours enjoying the beautiful paintings and reading about the subject matter. A wonderful gift for the art appreciator.

I shelled out a lot of cash when this book came out. There were few other books available. I'll be honest, I bought it for the artwork. I recently began to read the essays....they are great, this book is worth the price. If you have a great interest in German Expressionism, you will find this a very enjoyable reference.
