Description
The influence of the Holocaust on literature and philosophy has long been accepted and studied while its influence on the visual arts has been paid scant attention. Studies so far published concentrate on such aspects as art produced in the camps or by former camp inmates and have rarely attempted to define the extent to which the Holocaust, as a major historical event, influenced Western art as a whole. Professor Amishai-Maisels' unique study shows how different groups of artist with varying purposes set out to answer the question, 'How does one deal with the Holocaust in art?'
