Petropoulos, Jonathan

The Faustian Bargain, the art world in Nazi Germany


Petropoulos’s very interesting work examines, in considerable depth, some of the major personalities that were behind both extensive looting of art treasures and also the promotion of pronationalistic works. * Booklist * Spotlighting five groups * art museums directors, art dealers, art journalists, art historians, and artists * Based on exhaustive archival research, The Faustian Bargain is the only book to reveal the complex web of complicity linking art world professionals and the Nazi elite. It is a fascinating look not just at how these individuals collaborated with the Third Reich, but at how they were denazified and rehabilitated after the war.
