Vienna-Berlin: The Art of Two Cities from Schiele to Grosz


Member Price

Vienna-Berlin: The Art of Two Cities from Schiele to Grosz is the first publication to compare and contrast the artistic traditions in Berlin and Vienna during the birth of the Modernist movement. From the beginning of the 20th century to the period between the two world wars, Berlin and Vienna witnessed an explosion of artistic productivity and experimentation.

This book features works by Schiele, Hausmann, Hoffmann, Kokoschka, Dix, Grosz, Liebermann, Kirchner, and others, and documents how two very different cities developed artistic traditions that were unique and yet similar to each other. Starting with the Secessionist movements, this volume compares and contrasts Berlin's realism with Vienna's ornamentalism. World War I led to greater proximity between the two nations and to active artistic exchanges between them, both in relation to the rise of New Objectivity and of stagecraft. Viennese kineticism, whose counterpart in Berlin was the Dada movement, are also examined.
