Art of Germany
Year:
2010
From the Renaissance-era woodcuts of Albrecht Dürer to the modernist aesthetic of the Bauhaus movement, Germany’s artistic influence on the world has been profound. But did prejudice following two World Wars lead to the neglect of its 500-year cultural legacy? Art critic Andrew Graham-Dixon believes so, and in this three-part series he takes a tour through Germany as he explores the great themes of its art – an obsession with landscape, folklore and national identity.
