Caricaturist, Social Critic, and Translator of Karl Kraus
by Werner Mohr
As This volume traces the life and work of artist and writer Albert Bloch, the only American in the first Munich exhibition of the Blue Rider. A native of St. Louis, Bloch lived in Munich and worked closely with prominent artists such as Kandinsky and Marc, and along with them contributed to significant developments in the history of modern art. After his return to the United States, Bloch continued his work as an artist at the University of Kansas, where he taught art and art history. Less well known are his literary activities. A key to understanding this side of Bloch's achievements, which intertwined with his art, is his relationship to Karl Kraus, whose work he studied, translated, and promoted in the United States.
