Otto Dix ( Gera 1891 - Singen 1969 )

Wilhelm Heinrich Otto Dix was a German artist, painter, print maker and watercolorist. His depictions of mechanized warfare and post-war Berlin continue to shape our impressions of the Great War and Weimar society. Along with George Grosz, Dix was one of the more important figures in New Objectivity. While Grosz delved into the shadows of modern society, Dix stared into the abyss. Three themes dominate much of his art: the Modern War, the Aftermath and Femmes Fatales.
