John Heartfield
by Peter Pachnicke
Publisher's Description
John Heartfield, known as one of the inventors of photomontage, was a master at combining disturbing imagery with ironic political slogans. Included in this monograph "are virulent photomontages that appeared in the German leftist newspaper AIZ between 1930 and 1938; Dada pieces; theater sets; strikingly original book jackets for works by such authors as Upton Sinclair, John Dos Passos, and Ilya Ehrenburg: and satirical political portraits."--the publisher John Heartfield is the catalogue accompanying a major exhibition of the artist's work opening at The Museum of Modern Art in April 1993. With nearly 290 illustrations, including 83 full-color plates, and essays by scholars such as Peter Pachnicke and Klaus Honnef, this monograph provides the most complete study on the artist to date.
