Drawing upon unpublished materials at the Ernst Barlach Stiftung in Gustrow, Germany, this work serves both as a fitting tribute to Barlach, the man and the artist, and as a welcome complement to Paret's previous publications on German attitudes toward modernism in art, which began with his path-breaking monograph,The Berlin Secession (London, 1980), and continued with a collection of essays, German Encounters with Modernism, 1840-1945 (New York, 2001).
