This book was produced to accompany an exhibition of the same name at the Metropolitan Museum, New York, between the 14th November 2006 and 19th February 2007. The book contains 135 full colour reproductions of paintings, watercolours and sketches and many archive photographs of the people represented in the works. A chronology of the Weimar Republic and three essays on the period are included. The reproductions in the catalogue are excellent and the accompanying commentary by Sabine Rewald is both concise and very informative, and provides a fascinating insight into the lives of the various sitters. Many portraits by Otto Dix and George Grosz are reproduced together with smaller numbers by Max Beckmann, Rudolf Schlichter and Christian Schad. A beautifully produced book that has a clarity and straightforwardness in stark contrast to the verbose nonsense that has packed the bulky catalogues of recent London exhibitions. A delight to own.
