Party in whose name Grosz carried out his work. Drawing on Communist Party press reports, documents, and congress proceedings, McCloskey explores for the first time Grosz's changing involvement with the Party and provides a vivid history of the often tense and uncertain relationship between vanguard art and revolutionary politics during the turbulent years of the Weimar Republic. Continuing her account with his emigration to New York in 1933, McCloskey documents Grosz's
The exile of George Grosz : modernism, America, and the one world order by Barbara McCloskey( Book )

7 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 267 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Exile of George Grosz examines the life and work of George Grosz after he fled Nazi Germany in 1933 and sought to re-establish his artistic career under changed circumstances in New York. It situates Grosz's American production specifically within the cultural politics of German exile in the United States during World War II and the Cold War. Basing her study on extensive archival research and using theories of exile, migrancy, and cosmopolitanism, McCloskey explores how Grosz's art illuminates the changing cultural politics of exile. She also foregrounds the terms on which German exile helped to define both the limits and possibilities of American visions of a one world order under US leadership that emerged during this period. This book presents Grosz's work in relation to that of other prominent figures of the German emigration, including Thomas Mann and Bertolt Brecht, as the exile community agonized over its measure of responsibility for the Nazi atrocity German culture had become and debated what Germany's postwar future should be. Important too at this time were Grosz's interactions with the American art world. His historical allegories, self-portraits, and other works are analyzed as confrontational responses to the New York art world's consolidating consensus around Surrealism and Abstract Expressionism during and after World War II. This nuanced study recounts the controversial repatriation of Grosz's work and the exile culture of which it was a part to a German nation perilously divided between East and West in the Cold War"--Provided by publisher

The art of war by Deborah Ascher Barnstone( Book )

10 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 102 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The central concerns of the volume are the multivalent aspects of art that respond to war. It begins by considering art conceived of and executed in response to the First World War on the centennial anniversary of that event. The volume goes on to examine art in the wake of the Holocaust and artistic responses to more recent conflict, such as the Vietnam War. The essays in this volume explore a variety of media--including paintings by Otto Dix and Gerhard Richter, Holocaust photography by Heimrad Bäcker, and sculpture by Emy Roeder, Gela Forster, and Renée Sintenis--to chart the complex relationship between art and war in both its documentary and analytical functions."--Page 4 de la couverture

Eroticism, identity, and cultural context : Toyen and the Prague avant-garde by Karla Tonine Huebner( Book )

1 edition published in 2008 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

As a case study of one artist working within a specific avant-garde movement, this project contributes to critical re-evaluation of surrealism, the Central European contribution to modernism, and the role of female artists in the avant-garde. This intervention in the history of surrealism makes its intellectual contribution by changing our perception of the movement, giving vivid evidence of the Prague group's difference from and influence on the Paris group, and presenting a more complex and nuanced view of women's role in and treatment by surrealism

Using the Rothman Index and Length of Stay as a Trigger for Palliative Care in the Medical Intensive Care Unit and Step-Down Units( )

1 edition published in 2017 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Abstract : Despite the increased number of palliative care teams in the United States, access to palliative care in the hospital continues to be inadequate. The availability of a simple method to identify appropriate patients for palliative care may increase access. A pilot study was conducted using an observational prospective approach to analyze the effects of palliative interventions for those with a Rothman Index score of less than 40 and a length of stay of greater than 5 days for patients in the medical intensive care and step-down units in an urban teaching hospital, which provides tertiary palliative care. The Rothman Index is a validated formula providing a real-time measure of patient condition based on existing data in the electronic medical record. Patients receiving the palliative intervention had a decrease in the mean length of stay from 26.3 days for all other groups to 13.9 days. The odds ratio of a 30-day readmission for those patients without a palliative visit was 4.4. Costs were lowered by 54% for the palliative intervention group. The Rothman/length of stay trigger for palliative care intervention may have the potential to bend the cost curve for the health care system
