Against the background of acute political tensions a great exhibition of modern German art was shown in London in the summer of 1938: 'Twentieth Century German Art'. It was not only the first major retrospective of German modernist art in the English-speaking world, it was also the first international response to the Nazi campaign against so-called "degenerate art". Published to mark the eightieth anniversary of this important cultural event, this catalogue tells the story of the exhibition: the context in which it was staged, the circumstances of its organisation, and its impact in Britain and further afield.
