about this book

deutsch english

The German art historian Walter Kaesbach (1879–1961) is one of the most significant figures of the European community of art at the beginning of the 20th century. So far, Walter Kaesbach has been recognised within art historical research as a collector and a patron of Expressionism artists such as Erich Heckel, Emil Nolde, Paul Klee and Heinrich Nauen, to name just a few.

Caroline Yi contributes to the historiography of Walter Kaesbach’s biography by adding important aspects of his life and work during the Weimar Republic. Specifically, Yi’s research examines Walter Kaesbach’s exhibition Kunstausstellung Rethel in World War I, his launch of the first department of contemporary art at the National Gallery Berlin in 1919 and his innovative exhibition concept at the art studios of the art academy in Düsseldorf, known today as Rundgänge. By conducting extensive archive research and dealing with thus far unreleased documents, Caroline Yi was able to critically establish the circumstances that lead to Walter Kaesbach’s dismissal in 1933 from his office as the director of the art academy in Düsseldorf.
