Description: Although the Weimar Republic has received elaborate attention in the areas of history, politics, and culture in general, studies of the art movement that best defines the period have been rare. Post-Expressionism in Germany is the first study to reconstruct historically the evolution of Die neue Sachlichkeit, the slogan coined as a designation for the Post-Expressionist figural art that developed throughout Germany following the failed revolution of 1919.

Rather than start with the moment this Post-Expressionist movement was christened with a slogan (1923), Crockett investigates the sources and precepts of Post-Expressionism beginning with the anti-Expressionist stance of Dada in 1918 and the loss of faith in Expressionism on the part of some of its chief supporters during 1919-20. With the author's historical reconstruction of both the development of figural Post-Expressionism and contemporary criticism, the historical inaccuracy regarding the popular understanding of Die neue Sachlichkeit becomes evident.
