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.
