Exiles and Emigres: The Flight of European Artists from Hitler

Overview

Exiles and Emigres, published in conjunction with a traveling exhibition opening in February 1997 at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, is the first book to trace the lives and work of 23 well-known painters, sculptors, photographers, and architects exiled from their homelands during the 12 years of Nazi rule.

Overview

The rise of the Nazis in 1933 caused an unprecedented forced migration of hundreds of artists within and, in many cases, ultimately away from Europe. Exiles and Emigres, published in conjunction with a traveling exhibition opening in February 1997 at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, is the first book to trace the lives and work of 23 well-known painters, sculptors, photographers, and architects exiled from their homelands during the 12 years of Nazi rule.

Some of the artists, such as Kandinsky, Beckmann, Heartfield, Schwitters, and Kokoschka, sought refuge in Paris, London, or Amsterdam. Others, including Leger, Ernst, Chagall, Gropius, and Mies van der Rohe, fled to the United States. For all the artists, their years of exile would become crucial to the development of their art.

Essays by 19 prominent American and European art historians discuss all aspects of the artist in exile, from monographic studies of individual figures to an analysis of the French artistic community in New York. More than 300 illustrations, including many historical photographs, provide a rich visual documentation of the time. An illustrated chronology details key cultural and political events.

The related exhibition travels to the Musee des Beaux Arts de Montreal in June 1997 and to the Neue Nationalgalerie, Berlin, in October.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
LACMA senior curator Barron follows up her acclaimed 1991 show and catalog Degenerate Art: The Fate of the Avant-Garde in Nazi Germany (LJ 8/91) with this equally important and powerfully rendered exhibition catalog. She covers the careers, lives, and works of 23 well-known German and Austrian artists, architects, and photographers who lived in exile between 1933 and 1945. More than 300 illustrations, historic photographs, and documents accompany essays by 19 contributors that interweave social and political conditions with research on individual artists. Organized thematically, the text covers such topics as the exiled artists' initial flights to European artistic centers outside of Germany, their escape from Europe, the cultural climate they faced in the United States, and their influence as teachers. A detailed chronology and bibliography add to its lasting reference value. Highly recommended for all academic and large and medium public libraries.Russell T.
