Art, Design, and Architecture in Central Europe, 1890-1920.
Clegg, Elizabeth.
Art, Design, and Architecture in Central Europe, 1890-1920.
Part of the Pelican History of Art series. In this unprecedentedly wide-ranging accountof art, design, and architecture in the complex Central Europe of the Austro-Hungarian Empire during its momentous last decades, Elizabeth Clegg achieves a forceful integration of political and cultural developments. Comparing the situation in eight cities-among them Vienna, Prague, Budapest, Cracow, and Zagreb-the author highlights contrasts, rivalries, parallels, and interconnections across this colorful and important region. The book deals with all the chief ethnic/national categories of Austria-Hungary and embraces all the visual arts. Focusing on their public display, appraisal, and consumption, Clegg shows how theharmonious/antagonistic coexistence of institutions, publications, and events gave rise to the dynamic art life of a period that would end in a turning point for Central Europe. As vividly revealed, this was a time and place marked by a simultaneous fear and celebration of ethnic, linguistic, and cultural diversity that has enormous international resonance a century later.
