Highlighting a distinctive mode of realism explored by diverse European artists from the late 1930s through the 1950s, this catalogue documents an exhibition of 253 paintings, drawings, sculptures and photographs that include many expressive portraits and figure studies embodying visions of alienation and psychological anguish. Good reproductions of the works and individual commentaries on the featured artists are prefaced by an essay examining their humanist and existentialist themes and their stylistic orientations in the context of the cultural, artistic and philosophical climate in Europe during the period.
