Hilary Knight collection, with his stamp of ownership and signature on front pastedown. First Edition. Oversize quarto and profuse illustrations including over 100 full color plates. ISBN: 3791331957. This striking collection traces the evolution of a largely ignored, but immensely influential movement in modern art. It brings together a dazzling array of artists--including Paul Klee, Max Klinger, Alfred Kubin, Emil Nolde, and Max Ernst--who, inspired by the example of Arnold Bocklin, forged a unique aesthetic with enormous consequences for modern German art. Essays consider the connection between the visual arts and the rise of cabaret culture and satirical journals. Tight binding.
