For this book Stephanie Barron of the Los Angeles County Museum of Art has gathered eighteen prominent European and American scholars and writers to explore the meaning and consequences of this displacement, concentrating especially on the experiences of the exiles abroad and the receptions they encountered in their host countries. The focus is on twenty-three well-known painters, sculptors, photographers, and architects, including Josef Albers, Max Beckmann, Marc Chagall, Salvador Dali, Max Ernst, Walter Gropius, Wassily Kandinsky, and more. The book includes a generous selections of the works of these artists created in exile.” Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: 5 lbs 4 oz. Category: Art & Design; History; ISBN: 087587178X.
