German Art Works At Busch-Reisinger

Wartime suffering and disillusionment is the theme of an exhibition of World War I paintings, drawings, and prints by German artists now on display at the Busch-Reisinger Museum.

The title of the exhibit is "War and Aftermath: German Art in Relation to the First World War." Cooperating museums and individuals have contributed more than 50 items. Among the artists represented are Grosz, Dix, Beckmann, Rohlfs, and Klee.

Included in the exhibit are samples of the Dada movement, whese adherents preached the worthlessness of human endeavor and the non-existence of spiritual values. This school reflected the nihilist sentiment that culminated in the outbreak of Nazism.
