This book -- a survey of German art between 1945 and 1990 -- compares how art mirrored the different political circumstances in the two German states during this period.

It reveals for the first time how artists from East and West Germany responded to the Nazi dictatorship, the Holocaust and the world war, and various political developments, showing that the dividing line between East and West was much less strict than has been imagined.Authorities on German art discuss major works by such artists as Max Beckmann, Max Ernst, Otto Dix, Josef Albers, Georg Baselitz, Eva Hesse, Gerhard Richter, Josef Beuys, Anselm Kiefer, Hanne Darboven, and others.

The book also includes biographies of the artists.This handsome book is the catalogue for the exhibition Deutschlandbilder to be held at the 47 Berliner Festwochen from September 1997 until January 1998.
