New Worlds: German and Austrian Art 1890-1940

New Worlds: German and Austrian Art 1890-1940

New Worlds: German and Austrian Art 1890-1940 is the inaugural catalogue for Neue Galerie New York. A distinguished group of international scholars surveys the development of modern art complemented by biographies on the artists represented in the museum's collection. Emphasis is placed upon the American reception to their work, a previously little-explored area in this field. In this context, the role of museums, art dealers, patrons and critics are examined as well.


Gustav Klimt, Egon Schiele, Oskar Kokoschka, and artists of the Wiener Werkstätte are among the featured artists. Leading figures, such as Max Beckmann, Peter Behrens, Otto Dix, Vasily Kandinsky, Paul Klee, and Ludwig Mies van der Rohe are also examined in the context of key movements in Germany such as the Brücke, the Blaue Reiter, Neue Sachlichkeit, and the Bauhaus.
