Abstract:

"More than almost any other German painter, Otto Dix and his works have profoundly influenced the popular notion of the Weimar Republic. His paintings were among the most graphic visual representatives of that period, exposing with unsparing and wicked wit the instability and contradictions of the time." "The particular role that Dix played as an artist in the Weimar Republic can only be understood against the backdrop of the painter's experiences during the First World War, from 1914 to 1918. The essay in the present volume by Dietrich Schubert discusses this theme using Dix's war-era self-portraits as examples. The artist's wartime experiences also shaped his shockingly brutal depictions of sexual attitudes and his paintings of prostitutes, the subject of another of the essays in this publication." "This catalogue accompanies an exhibition that will run from March 11 through August 30, 2010, at Neue Galerie New York, before travelling to the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts, where it will be on view from September 24, 2010, to January 2, 2011. It includes the paintings that Dix is best known for - paintings from the so-called "golden Weimar years"--But to contextualize them, it also includes Dix's work from the early 1920s, as well as his later more allegorical work, produced as veiled protest against the Third Reich."--Jacket.
