Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal

This catalog of an exhibit at the Van Gogh Museum, Amsterdam, and the Museum of Applied Art, Frankfurt, looks at all the visual arts, as well as literature and music, in what was one of the largest provincial cities of the Austro-Hungarian Empire a century ago. As in other European provincial centers (e.g., Glasgow, Barcelona, or Turin), there was a remarkable cultural efflorescence centered around local pride and emerging nationalism, all tinged with flavorings of such international movements as Symbolism, Art Nouveau, and Expressionism. Other than Alphonse Mucha, most of the artists featured here will be unfamiliar to nonspecialists, but they and their cultural milieu are well presented by a team of Czech authors. Most objects are from Czech collections. The English translations are good, the plates are excellent, and the volume will serve general audiences as a broad introduction while providing the specialist with a wealth of unfamiliar images.
