Abstract :
Discusses modernism in German culture, especially in Berlin, before the First World War and the role Jewish people played in its development. Considers Philipp Stauff's 1913 view that Jews in the fine arts were a threat to German culture. Considers Berlin-born Max Liebermann's role in art and his position as president of the Berlin Secession. Considers the Secessionist movement of artists throughout central Europe in the 1890s. Looks at the role of Bruno and Paul Cassirer. Studies Wilhelm II's reaction to the Berlin Secession including excluding the group from the 1904 St. Louis World's Fair and his attempts to stem the tide of modernist art. Includes his relationship to Hugo von Tschudi. Looks at Louis Corinth's presidency of the Secession. Concludes modernism was fostered jointly by Jews and non-Jews, each depending on the other. ;
