Examining the significant but little-studied involvement of German, Austrian and Jewish artists in the development of Czech art and architecture from the late 19th century to the eve of World War II, this catalogue includes illustrations of more than 180 paintings, drawings, prints, posters and architectural works by Kokoschka, Schiele, Orlik, Oppenheimer, Kubin, Hablik, Bromse, Gutfreund, Loos, Teschner, Hoffmann, Mendelsohn and dozens of other prominent and lesser-known figures. Eleven essays explore the complex interactions of Czech and "minority" artists in the context of the region's turbulent political history, profile the contributions of individual artists, and discuss trends in art and architecture in Moravia, Bohemia and Silesia.
