Following the Great War, Germany's economy and political structure collapsed, yet the Weimar era was an immensely prolific era for the nation's artists. Ranging across the spectrum of this innovative time, the 257 reproductions highlight the architects (Mies van der Rohe, Walter Gropius); the dadaists (George Grosz, Hannah Hoch, and Raoul Hausmann); and mavericks (Max Beckmann, Otto Dix, and photographer Otto "Umbo" Umbehr). While offering an overview of the decade, individual chapters are also devoted to fashion, the popularity of jazz, the Novembergruppe artists, the emergence of the "new woman," and the lasting significance of Fritz Lang's silent masterpiece Metropolis.
