Published by the Frye Art Museum in conjunction with its exhibition Franz von Stuck. On the occasion of the 150th anniversary of Stuck’s birth and the 120th anniversary of his American debut, Franz von Stuck is celebrated in the first monographic exhibition of his work in the United States. The catalogue examines Stuck's theory of the spatial qualities of color; his influence on Josef Albers, Vassily Kandinsky, and Paul Klee; his breach with naturalism; and his willing embrace of the transformative ideas of his day. Essays document for the first time Stuck's participation in major international exhibitions in the United States and the reception of his work in the New World.
