This book represents the first study dedicated to Twentieth Century German Art, the 1938 London exhibitionthat was the largest international response to the cultural policies of National Socialist Germany and the infamous Munich exhibition Degenerate Art. Provenance research into the catalogued exhibits has enabled a full reconstruction of the show for the first time: its contents and form, its contributors and their motivations, and its impact both in Britain and internationally.
Presenting the research via six case-study exhibits, the book sheds new light on the exhibition and reveals it as one of the largest migr projects of the period, which drew contributions from scores of German migr collectors, dealers, art critics, and from the degenerate artists themselves. The book explores the shows potency as an anti-Nazi statement, which prompted a direct reaction from Hitler himself.
