Arcadia and Metropolis

Arcadia and Metropolis

This exhibition presented a selection of important paintings from the Nationalgalerie, Berlin, one of Germany's major collections of twentieth-century art. Major Expressionist and Neue Sachlichkeit artists represented include Max Beckmann, Otto Dix, George Grosz, Erich Heckel, Ernst Ludwig Kirchner, Emil Nolde, Max Pechstein, and Karl Schmidt-Rotluff.


Arranged thematically and with in-depth explanatory texts, the catalogue traces the evolution of German art as it moved from the mountains to city life, from optimism to bitter disillusionment.  Essays by key scholars and curators examine these artists’ varied responses to their country’s abrupt encounter with industrialization and urbanization.
