The Cathedral

Via Tigerloaf, here’s a blog outstanding in its combination of tight focus and bountiful richness: Weimar, on the theme of art and modernity in Central Europe. And with such a subject, political history is central to very many of the posts.

The above image is by an artist new to me, A. Paul Weber, the subject of a post at the Weimar blog. Though he was actively anti-Hitler, and was imprisoned for a period because of his politics, nonetheless the Nazis used his satirical drawings on British imperialism as war propaganda. More on his story at the Weber Museum.
