Result of our research is a monographic study dealing with a prominent part of Kokoschka's life and work which has hitherto been regarded too little by scholars. The years of his exile in Prague and particularly in London, where he had to work under a lot of stress and pressure, are the time in which his political allegories came to be. As these works are outside the established canon of art historical development, and as they have no affinity to Surrealism or to Abstract art, scholars have so far spent comparatively less effort to analyse them. This study approaches the group of these works from a transdisciplinary perspective. The authors (G. Sultano is trained historian, P. Werkner art historian) set out from different questions with regard to his oevre and his life. This results in combining the view of a prominent body of Kokoschka's paintings with a biographical perspective set against a political-historical background.

Rudolf von Eitelberger (1817-1885) was a central actor within the emergence of numerous art historical institutions and initiatives in cultural politics and is known, among his other positions, as the first Professor of Art History at the University of Vienna, as the founding director of the Imperial Royal Austrian Museum of Art and Industry and its affiliated School of Applied Arts (1867).The 19 essays in this volume differentiate his influence, i.a. his art-theoretical attitude towards the aesthetics of autonomy and the academic education of artists, his architectural critical positions between research on the history of architecture and ideologically influenced style preferences, his cultural-political interventions within the Habsburg monarchy and in exchange with Prussia, his role in the bourgeois womens’ movement and so forth.These essays are supplemented by the first list of Eitelberger’s writings aiming at completeness, comprising nearly 600 positions, as well as a newly researched list of books formerly in Eitelberger’s collection, which are now preserved in the MAK library.
