Prague, Capital of the Twentieth Century (review)

Press / Media: Research

Description

"Prague’s surrealist legacy, forgotten amid twentieth century totalitarianism, is revived and detailed in an impressive narrative ... the scholarship is impressive, the illustrations fascinating, and, despite the denseness of the material, the style is conversational ... It will be valued by those interested in European cultural history during the twentieth century and how modern art was colored by the horrors of the political landscape."
