Max Pechstein biography

9783110282085This new biography of Max Pechstein includes a very insightful chapter about his life during the Weimar years: ‘Max Pechstein (1881–1955) is one of the most prominent German artists of the twentieth century, not least because of his crucial role in the breakthrough of German Expressionism. This long overdue biography combines the portrayal of an outstanding artistic personality with the story of an individual German who struggled through the political upheavals of his time. Pechstein’s work is presented in the cultural context of museum politics and art associations, art dealers and critics, market forces and cultural trends.’
