Haunted by his horrific experience as a soldier during World War I, German artist Otto Dix (1891-1969) was driven to portray life with brutal realism. A keen observer of his era, he cast his acerbic gaze on his contemporaries, from life in the battlefields to the people in the streets, brothels and salons of Germany during the Weimar Republic until the Third Reich. A singularly disturbing and fascinating œuvre.



"This is powerful art that resonates in our own world. It might fill you more with dread than joy, but you won't soon forget it."
— John Pohl, The Gazette, September 26, 2010

"Top marks for Dix... It's the must-see show this fall. Not to be missed!"
— Nicolas Mavrikakis, Voir, September 23, 2010
