Bibliography of secondary sources

This bibliography is provided in addition to the list of primary sources, which means that secondary literature (introductions, afterwords, etc) included in Max Raphael’s (posthumous) publications have been omitted – unless digital editions are available. The list has been compiled by Jules Schoonman and is based on sources provided by Patrick Healy, those listed by Ulrike Wendland in Biographisches Handbuch deutschsprachiger Kunsthistoriker im Exil (1999, see below) and suggestions by others who contacted the Max Raphael Project. If you would like to contribute to the list or are able to provide access to named sources, please don’t hesitate to get in touch.
