Gemälde und Grafiken aus dem Russlandkrieg
These works are an extremely important historical source that gives an overview of the propaganda objectives of the Nazis and their development; the effects of direct experience of war; and the way German soldiers and their enemies were perceived and portrayed. A further exceptional quality of the collection is the depiction of the enemy, and impressions of the Russian landscape and people. Both the content of the collection and the styles of the works are extremely varied, including works showing the influence of “New Objectivity”, Cubism and Expressionism. This resource fits into the tradition of German military art after the First World War, the directives of Nazi art policy and the history of the German propaganda units with reference to the institutions that influenced these units.
