(p.149) Conclusion
The Aesthetics of Loss

Claudia Siebrecht

Oxford University Press

The conclusion links the aesthetics developed by German female artists between 1914 and 1918 to the interwar period and points out how they stood in contrast with the Nazi vision of wartime death, as numerous pieces by some of the more prolific female artists were removed from public exhibitions and denounced as degenerate. Women's wartime aesthetics also had a long-term impact on the memory of artistic forms of war in twentieth-century Germany.
