This detailed survey of the development of early 20th-century German sculpture and its problematic status during the Third Reich features reproductions and substantial individual discussions of 86 chiefly figurative pieces by Barlach, Kollwitz, Lehmbruck, Marcks, Hoetger, Schlemmer and 33 other artists, many of whose works were condemned by the Nazis in the 1930s. Eight well-illustrated essays consider "degenerate art" in its political and aesthetic contexts, examine stylistic aspects of National Socialist sculpture, and discuss such topics as the pieta motif in German sculpture from 1850 to 1950 and the lasting influence of proscribed art on postwar sculptors in East Germany.
