            Hitler's Last Hostages: Looted Art and the Soul of the Third Reich

            The ambitious, riveting story of Hitler's obsession with art, how it fueled his vision of a purified Nazi state, and the fate of the artwork that was hidden, stolen, or destroyed to cleanse German culture The story of art is integral to the story of the rise of Nazi Germany. Adol...f Hitler, an artist himself, was obsessed with art--in particular, the aesthetic of a purified regime, scoured of degenerate influences that characterized Germany during the 1920s and 1930s, when it was more culturally innovative and daring than anywhere else in the word. The Germany of Cabaret, hyperinflation, and Rosa Luxemburg was a society in turmoil, and among those who reveled in the discord were a generation of artists from George Grosz to Helmut Hertzfeld to Hannah Hoch for whom art was a political weapon. They were fierce, inspired, and rebellious, but to Hitler, they were anathema. When they came to power in 1933, Hitler and Goebbels set their aesthetic vision into motion and removed degenerate art from German life: Grosz and his family fled to America; museums were purged; and great works disappeared, only a fraction of which were rediscovered at the end of the Second World War. Most remained in garrets and cellars, the last hostages of the era of the Reich. In 2014, 1290 works by Chagall, Picasso, Matisse, Otto Dix, Max Beckmann and others were rediscovered. In Hitler's Last Hostages, Mary Lane brilliantly tells the story of art and the Third Reich, and the fate of Germany's great era of artists as they fought to survive the Nazi era.

            The World of The Dark Crystal invites fans to delve into the creation and lore of the Jim Henson classic through the evocative illustrations of Brian Froud, concept designer on the original film. Jim Henson's 1982 classic The Dark Crystal introduced the world to the remarkable im...agination of concept artist Brian Froud, who designed the film's iconic characters, creatures, and locations. Following the success of the film, Henson and Froud collaborated on The World of The Dark Crystal, a unique book that showcases the gorgeous conceptual artwork created for the film and delves into the lore that underpins Thra, the magical world at the heart of Henson's story. Now, for the first time in over 15 years, The World of The Dark Crystal is back in print, featuring an abundance of striking art and including all the bonus material from the 2003 Collector's Edition-a fascinating essay by Froud on the creative process of making the film and a facsimile of a booklet Froud and Henson presented to the film's early backers. Beautiful, imaginative, and powerful, The World of The Dark Crystal celebrates a landmark fantasy film that continues to win new fans more than three decades after its release.

            Through a consideration of how we have come to perceive art crime and the gendered language associated with its documentation, this pioneering study questions why women have been left out of the discourse to date and how, by looking specifically at women, we can gain a more compl...ete picture of art crime history.
