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. The immense cultural consequences of this historical cataclysm are the subject of "Exiles and Emigrés: The Flight of European Artists from Hitler".
In the course of a few harrowing years the lives of a remarkable cadre of important modern artists -including surrealists, members of the school of Paris, and former Bauhaus associates- were reshaped. The rise of National Socialism caused many German artists to surrender or reevaluate their national and cultural identities and to find new outlets for their creative energies. Eventually the artists and other art professionals who fled Hitler altered the larger course of art history by vastly enriching the American artistic milieu with their presence as teachers and creators.
For "Exiles and Emigrés" Stephanie Barron of the Los Angeles County Museum of Art has gathered eighteen prominent European and American 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 of the works 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.
"Exiles and Emigrés" includes an illustrated chronology of the period from 1933 to 1945 which details key political and cultural events, with special emphasis on exile cultural activities, patterns of emigration, and immigration legislation.
