Art and Fascist Ideology in France and Italy: An Introduction / Matthew Affron and Mark Antliff -- The Myth of National Regeneration in Italy: From Modernist Avant-Garde to Fascism / Emilio Gentile -- Ardengo Soffici and the Religion of Art / Walter L. Adamson -- Valentine de Saint-Point and the Fascist Construction of Woman / Nancy Locke -- Mario Sironi's Urban Landscapes: The Futurist/Fascist Nexus / Emily Braun -- La Cite francaise: Georges Valois, Le Corbusier, and Facist Theories of Urbanism / Mark Antliff -- Waldemar George: A Parisian Art Critic on Modernism and Fascism / Matthew Affron -- The State as Patron: Making Official Culture in Fascist Italy / Marla Stone -- Decadence and Renewal in the Decorative Arts under Vichy / Michele C. Cone.
Summary: Bringing together studies by art historians, historians, and political scientists, Fascist Visions explores the themes and paradigms that pervaded protofascist and fascist aesthetic discourse, cultural policy, and artistic production in France and Italy. Whether traditionalist or innovative in idiom, art expressed fascism's ideological polarities: nihilism and idealism, modernism and antimodernism, revolution and reaction. This volume charts the unfolding of fascist aesthetics from its genesis in nationalist and antimaterialist ideologies before World War I to its full development during the interwar period and World War II. It also highlights the shared motivations of advocates of fascist aesthetics, including artists, art critics, political activists, and government officials, outside of Germany.
