Description: Köln: Wienand, 2011. 28cm., hardcover, 216pp., 167 color illus. Exhibition held at Stiftung Brandenburger Tor, Berlin. German text. Summary: The Neue Secession in Berlin existed from 1910 to 1914, and played an important role in the establishment of Expressionism in Germany. The Neue Secession was founded on the initiative of the painter Georg Tappert as a counter-organization to the Berlin Secession led by Max Liebermann. In its seven exhibitions, it presented to a sometimes shocked public works by Berlin Expressionists such as Moriz Melzer, Heinrich Richter-Berlin and César Klein, works by famous members of the Brücke group, and by artists belonging to the future Blauer Reiter association, as well as those of numerous painters and sculptors from other German towns and cities, from Bohemia and Moravia, and also from France. This publication shows around a seventy of the works exhibited at the time, and casts light for the first time on the history and importance of this group of artists. As a result it makes an important contribution to our knowledge of art politics in the period preceding the First World War, and closes a gap in the heavily researched area of Expressionism.
