    The political elite of Nazi Germany perceived itself as a cultural elite as well. In Art as Politics in the Third Reich, Jonathan Petropoulos explores the elite's cultural aspirations by examining both the formulation of a national aesthetic policy and the content of the private art collections held by high-ranking Nazis. He demonstrates that these leaders manipulated public policy and their own collecting patterns to articulate fundamental tenets of Nazi ideology.Petropoulos begins by tracing the evolution of official aesthetic policy, from the purges of museum staff and academics labeled as 'undesirable' in 1933 to the confiscation of Jewish-owned artworks in the late 1930s and the organized plundering of art from occupied areas during the war. He then reconstructs the collections of a dozen prominent Nazi officials?including Hitler, Gšring, Goebbels, Himmler, Speer, and Ribbentrop?and argues that their private holdings defined their relationships to one another within the Nazi hierarchy in addition to reflecting their racist and nationalist beliefs. According to Petropoulos, art collecting offered the political elite a way to achieve legitimacy and social standing, thereby providing a common cultural language for the leaders of the Third Reich.

    Little scholarly attention has been paid to the German Art Society, which was a group founded in 1920, and consisting of artists, writers, and right-wing activists who actively embraced Nazism. Clinefelder (history, U. of Northern Colorado) explains that these artists worked to preserve what they considered to be the German cultural tradition, and argues that they were instrumental in shaping Nazi cultural policies. He examines the Society's founder Bettina Feistel-Rohmeder, the origins of the Society, Weimar culture, National Socialism, and the German Art Society's role in the Third Reich.

    Color and clash: The height of German ExpressionismThe Brücke (established in Dresden in 1905) is, together with the Blauer Reiter in Munich, the most important movement in German Expressionism. Meaning “bridge” in German, Brücke refers to Nietzsche’s belief that humanity has the potential to make a bridge to a perfect future; more concretely, the movement formed a bridge between neo-romantic and expressionist painting.This book covers the work of founding members Ernst Ludwig Kirchner,Erich Heckel, Karl Schmidt-Rottluff, and Fritz Bleyl, as well as works by their friends, such as Emil Nolde andOtto Mueller. Divided into four main categories (self-portraits and portraits of friends, nudes in the studio and in nature, men in the cities, and war and apocalyptic themes) this volume provides a stimulating overview of the movement.About the series:Each book in TASCHEN’s Basic Genre series features:approximately 100 colour illustrations with explanatory captions a detailed illustrated introduction plus a timeline of the most important political, cultural, and social events that took place during that perioda selection of the most important works of the epoch, each presented on a 2-page spread with a full-page image and accompanying interpretation, as well as a portrait and brief biography of the artist
