Lot Details

German artist George Grosz (1893-1959) known especially for his satirical drawings of 1920s and 1930s that captured the mood of the Weimar Republic and Berlin society, was a member of the Berlin Dada and New Objectivity groups, and his work expressed the despair, hate and disillusionment of that era. A prominent opponent of the Nazi regime, by 1933 the artist was forced to immigrate to the USA. There he began teaching at the Art Students League in New York. In 1954 Grosz entered the American Academy of Arts and Letters and four years later the Academy of Fine Arts of Germany.

On machine made wove paper, with full margins.
