The Faustian Bargain: The Art World in Nazi Germany
By Jonathan Petropoulos
Why this book?
Painstakingly researched and written with a novelist’s eye for telling details and colorful personalities, Petropoulos’s book is an early (2000), ambitious attempt to bring to life the most influential and, because of their collaboration with the Hitler regime, controversial figures in German art under National Socialism—the directors of museums, art dealers, art journalists, art historians, and artists.
