9780773461659: Vitalism In Modern Art, C. 1900-1950: Otto Dix, Stanley Spencer, Max Backmann And Jacob Epstein (STUDIES IN ART HISTORY)

Lofthouse (fellow, modern history, Oxford U.) sketches an overview of "the vitalist moment" of the early 20th century--"a moment which re-enchanted life in the face of mechanistic onslaught, sought a reprieve from the more demoralizing implications of evolutionary inquiry and left open a space for spirit or even God in nature"--then pursues vitalism in modernism and modern art. He emphasizes Germany and Great Britain, focusing on the artists Dix, Spencer, Beckmann, and Epstein. The study includes nine color plates and about a dozen b&w images of the four artists and their work. Annotation ©2004 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
