Art historian Ida Katherine Rigby's Alle Künstler! War, Revolution, Weimar: German Expressionist Prints, Drawings, Posters, and Periodicals allows readers to experience the anguish, frustration, and desperate experimentation which characterized German society in the wake of its bitter defeat in World War I. This cultural tumult (and ensuing aesthetic revolution) are nowhere more apparent than in the graphic posters, prints, and book/periodical illustrations produced by German Expressionist artists who joined the effort to reshape society between 1918 and 1922. In a bracing and profusely illustrated study, 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 Kàuathe 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, this classic work from the SDSU Press catalogue features over 100 illustrations. Includes index and a foreword Earl A. Powell, III.
