GEORGE GROSZ: BERLIN-NEW YORK. Ed. by Peter-Klaus Schuster. Neue Nationalgalerie, Staatliche Museen zu Berlin-Preussischer Kulturbesitz, Berlin, 1994. Organized in association with Akademie der Kunste, Berlin. Published in association with Ars Nicolai GmbH, Berlin. 592 pp. with 1227 ills. (265 col.). 33 x 25 cm. LC 95-139015 ISBN 3894790547 In German.
A major review of Grosz's career from his early association with the Berlin Dadaists through his emigration from Germany in 1933 and his late years in the United States, this massive catalogue presents fine reproductions and individual analyses of 67 paintings by the renowned German artist (1893-1959) along with illustrations of nearly 600 drawings, prints and collages, the works including apocalyptic cityscapes embodying Grosz's response to World War I, portraits reflecting his role in the Neue Sachlichkeit movement, many graphic and bitterly satirical images of social and political decadence in Weimar Germany, and expressive depictions of war and urban life executed in New York during the 1940s. Supplemented with reproductions and discussions of some 60 works by Beckmannn, Dix, Heartfield, Hopper, Shahn, Sheeler and other Berlin and New York artists of the 1920s, 30s and 40s, some twenty well-illustrated essays examine Grosz's activities in Germany and America and the complex character of his artistic and political outlook while also exploring such topics as his relationship to the Pittura Metafisca group, the sexual themes depicted in his oeuvre, his achievements as a draughtsman, and his involvement with the theater, music, photography and film.
