In the book Kunst und Rasse, Schultze-Naumburg expounds at great length on a central thesis: that which people paint (or sculpt) is what they see. If they are sane, they generally paint things quite beautiful. If they are insane, drugged, or are themselves ugly, they are apt to paint deranged, unrealistic, quite horrible images. To prove the point, Schultze-Naumburg shows several Rembrandt self portraits from different periods in the masters life. They depict the realistic aging of an average looking person. Schultze-Naumburg then shows portraits by modern degenerate artists and contrasts them with remarkable similar photographs taken of institutionalized half-wits and other deformed human beings. Schultze-Naumburg was a very successful German artist and architect who had done some truly remarkable work, even for the Kaiser. He met Adolf Hitler after World War I and wrote and spoke against the degeneration of art. In very good exterior and good interior condition Foxing to edges, prelims and last few pages.
