Ivan Mestrovic: The Current State Of Criticism, Dean A. Porter

The Courier

Few artists have had careers as long and prolific as Ivan Mestrovic's, and even fewer have known as much success and recognition. It would require volumes of print to document completely and properly, to discuss, and to evaluate the quality and scope of his sculptural, architectural, and literary accomplishments, and then additional volumes to duplicate the many monographs, essays, and articles that have been written about him. A brief mention of these accomplishments and a short review of the art-historical and critical comments on them will provide us with a point of reference from which to consider his position ...

Lang And Lee: Two Views Of The Great Depression, Steven M. Gelber

History

During the 1930s, America was the subject of American art. The European expressionism that had influenced so many artists through the 1920s was unceremoniously abandoned in favor of domestic realism. Creative people in all the arts adopted the theme.
