Otto Dix Paintings

Wilhelm Heinrich Otto Dix (December 2, 1891 – July 25, 1969) was a German printmaker and painter whose artwork was known for being filled with tormented individuals, ruthless depictions of society and the horrors of war. Dix’s work reflected life as he experienced it, raw, and at times, violent. He lived through both World War I and World War II. When the Nazi’s came to power in 1933, they dismissed him from his teaching position at the Dresden Academy, where he had worked for several years. They confiscated much of his work to display in their Degenerate Art Exhibition, which was meant to tear down the careers of artists whose work did not align with the Nazi agenda. After the war he was finally able to return to his position at Dresden. He is regarded as one of the most prominent artists of the Neue Sachlichkeit, or, New Objectivity.
