This is a very nice example of the rare German book Krieg und Kunst, Das Weltkriegserlebnis der deutschen Kunst (War and Art, the World War Experience in German Art) by Wilhelm Westecker, with a foreword by Bruno Brehm as published by Adolf Luser Verlag in 1940. The 6-¾ x 9-1/2 inch, 112 page hardcover book is in very good condition and is a First Edition example (one of only 5000) with 16 color and 64 black & white pictures.
The first 24 pages are a competent text in German, explaining the background of German war art. The next 88 pages are full-page illustrations of World War I German war art, sculpture and cemetery architecture, followed by an excellent bibliography of the artists whose work is featured.
Those artists include giants such as Wolfgang Willrich, Fritz Klimsch, Fritz von Graevenitz, Georg Kolbe, Ernst Vollbehr, Elk Eber, Franz Eichhorst, Arthur Kampf, Richard Scheibe, and many others.
A rare 1940 First Edition hard cover Nazi art book in very good used condition.
