This book offers the first English language overview of Ernst Wilhelm Nay's life and work. It features a detailed survey by John-Paul Stonard, who looks at the development of Nay's art and his relationship to the culture and politics of his time, from the Weimar Republic through the Third Reich to the postwar division of Germany. Pamela Kort introduces Nay's rise to fame in Germany followed by a comprehensive overview of Nay's reception outside of Germany, specifically in America and Britain. The two texts are accompanied by full colour illustrations of Nay's paintings and archival imagery of the artist's life.
