Description: Köln: Wienand, 2011. 30cm., hardcover, 340pp., 261 color, 82 b&w illus. Summary: The scholarship of the Deutsche Akademie Rom Villa Massimo is the most important award for German artists to study abroad. Initiated in 1910 by Eduard Arnhold’s gift of the park in Rome to the Prussian state, the Villa Massimo has, ever since, been the venerable site for work and contemplation for almost 700 writers and visual artists, and since 2002 also for those working in the applied fields of design, crafts, dance, theatre or film. To mark the centenary of the institution, this volume comprises, alongside an historical retrospect, a selection of thirty very different artist contributions, which provide an overview of the varied creative output produced at the artists’ academy.
