Overview

This book examines one of the most important trends in German art of the 20th century. Between the years 1922 and 1930, Neue Sachlichkeit-the New Objectivity'-exerted a decisive influence on the development of art, turning away from the main currents of avant-garde for the first time, to explore new avenues. It thus articulated the cultural ideals of Weimar Germany more precisely than Expressionism or the Bauhaus. In focusing on the society of the 1920s and the objective representation of the world around them, the artists of the New Objectivity offered a visual barometer of the lifestyle of their day, a factor that contributed to the popularity of the movement.
