In a decade riddled with political upheaval, economic crises, and the looming prospect of war, German and Austrian artists struggled to respond to their historical circumstances in their work. Their subsequent artistic developments are examined here, through some 150 works by artists such as Max Ernst, Otto Dix, and Felix Nussbaum, whose new idioms and images both reflected and foreshadowed the era’s major events.
