Abstract (English)

"In THE ART OF SOCIAL CONSCIENCE, Paul Von Blum discusses and illustrates the work of artists who share this attitude of engagement, from Goya’s eloquent protest against the horrors of war and Daumier’s passionate satire on the conditions of humankind to Rouault’s moral outrage based on religious convictions and Munch’s expressions of anguish and despair. (…) "Many of the artists discussed here," writes Peter Selz, "had a purposeful concept in their revolt, while others merely expressed their social conscience because that is what they had to do." They are "direct in their response and revealing and compassionate in the humanistic comments on the injustices of life in our era." -- p. [2] of cover.
