Jacques and Jacqueline Groag, Architect and Designer reviewed in Central European History Journal
Christopher Long reviews Ursula Prokop’s Jacques and Jacqueline Groag, Architect and Designer: Two Hidden Figures of the Viennese Modern Movement in the September 2020 of the Central European History Journal.
He writes, “Ursula Prokop, an independent architectural and design historian in Vienna … has performed a meticulous excavation of the lives of these two seminal figures in the Viennese modern movement, who, if not entirely lost to history, previously were mere peripheral actors. This book, originally published in German in 2005, has altered the terrain: the Groags are now very much present in the consciousness of scholars in the field. They are hidden no more, and their rediscovery has prompted some reassessment of them and their work, but also of the history of Viennese design.”
