"The rise of the Nazis in the 1930s caused an unprecedented upheaval in German art circles, uprooting hundreds of artists from their homeland. As German armies invaded neighboring countries, eventually occupying Paris, the capital of the Western art world, more artists were displaced, making the dislocations of exile and emigration felt throughout the European artistic community.Stephanie Barron of the Los Angeles County Museum of Art has gathered eighteen prominent American and European scholars and writers to explore the meaning and consequences of this displacement, concentrating especially on the experiences of the exiles abroad and the receptions they encountered in their host countries. The focus is on twenty-three well-known painters, sculptors, photographers, and architects, including Josef Albers, Max Beckmann, Marc Chagall, Salvador Dali, Max Ernst, Walter Gropius, George Grosz, John Heartfield, Wassily Kandinsky, André Kertész, Oskar Kokoschka, Fernand Léger, Jacques Lipchitz, André Masson, and Ludwig Mies van der Rohe. The book includes generous selections that these artists created in exile. Hundreds of documentary photographs - powerfully evoking isolation, bitterness, and uncertainty as well as rejuvenation, assimilation, and professional success - add to an understanding of the exile experience." Images are color & b/w photographic reproductions. Published in conjunction with the exhibition Exiles & Emigrés: The Flight of European Artists from Hitler, which was organized by LACMA.
