MAX KLINGER AND WILHELMINE CULTURE: ON THE THRESHOLD OF GERMAN MODERNISM. Marsha Morton. Ashgate Publishing, Farnham/Burlington, 2014. 434 pp. with 141 ills. 25 x 18 cm. LC 2013-45812 ISBN 9781409467588 In English.
Publisher's description: In this book, the first full-length study of its kind in English, Marsha Morton argues that no artist represented the shift from tradition to innovation in the Wilhelmine Empire (1870s-1880s) more compellingly than Max Klinger. Morton makes an interdisciplinary examination of Klinger's early prints and drawings within the context of Wilhelmine transformations, coming to the conclusion that the artist's work revealed the psychological and biological underpinnings of modern rational man whose drives and passions undermined bourgeois constructions of society.
