It differs from previous discussions of Marxist aesthetic theory in looking at Marxs views from an art-historical rather than from a literary perspective, and in placing those views in the context of the art practices, theories, and policies of Marxs own time. Dr Rose begins her work by discussing Marxs planned treatise on Romantic art of 1842 against the background of the philosophical debates, cultural policies, and art practices of the 1840s, and looks in particular at the patronage given to the group of German artists known as the Nazarenes in those years, who are discussed in relation to both the English Pre-Raphaelites, popular in the London known to Marx, and to the Russian Social Realists of the 1860s.

The author goes on to consider claims of twentieth-century Marxist art theories and practices to have represented Marxs own views on art. The book the conflicting claims made on Marxs views by the Soviet avant-garde Constructivists of the 1920s and of the Socialist Realists who followed them are considered, and are related back to the aesthetic theories and practices discussed in the earlier chapters.
