Dr. Crockett is a professor at Whitman College. He is the author of the acclaimed book German Post-Expressionism: The Art of the Great Disorder 1918-1924 (Penn State Press, 1999). The book "is the first study to reconstruct historically the evolution of Die neue Sachlichkeit, the slogan coined as a designation for the Post-Expressionist figural art that developed throughout Germany following the failed revolution of 1919." Dr. Crockett joined the Whitman community in 1992. He is now an Associate Professor of Art History and Visual Culture Studies, and Chair of the department. In 2000 Dr. Crockett was awarded the Arnold L. and Lois S. Graves Award to study anti-Prussian art in Germany.
