Dr Malcolm Gee
Malcolm’s research interests lie in the areas of 20th century European art and urban culture. He has written extensively on the history of the modern art market and art criticism, notably in France c.1900-1945. Besides contributing to The City in Central Europe and Printed Matters– see publications page – he is the author of the chapter 'Paris in War and Peace 1914-1945', in The Art and Spirit of Paris, New York: Abbeville Press, 2003.
He is currently working on the history of cultural relations between France and Germany during the interwar period, with specific reference to the promotion and consumption of modern art. He also has an interest in caricature and political cartoons – hence the paper on Heinrich Zille for the Sofia colloquium in July 2007.
