Lot description
Otto Dix studied decorative arts at the Dresden School of Arts and Crafts from 1909-14. He taught himself painting and found inspiration at the Dresden Art Gallery. He insisted that his work was deeply influenced by the Masters of the German Renaissance. He fought on the front line and saw service in Champagne and in the trenches of Artois where he fought in two major battles. Terrifying as it was, trench warfare also involved endless hours of waiting and therefore Dix found the time to draw in the midst of this misery. Dix embraced every aspect of Reality including, its negative side. He was a critical and curious investigator. He had a particular interest in tattoos and believed that the face and hands revealed the most about human character.

In excellent condition, rare.
