Fugitive Colors by Lisa Barr
Fugitive Colors is a historical novel inspired by what the Nazis called Entartete Kunst, or degenerate art, the term they used to describe art they had deemed to be not a true reflection of the cultural heritage of Germany. In the early half of the twentieth century, art and literature were subject to new ideas, interpretations, and expression in the uses of shape, form, color, and words. German Expressionism was considered to be on the cutting edge of the movement, using new techniques of color application not seen before. None of this new art fit into the Nazi ideal of racially pure art.
