    Art Brokerage: Otto Dix Germany Artist: b. 1891-1969. Born in Unterhaus in 1891, Otto Dix lived through Germany's most turbulent and exciting times of the early twentieth century and depicted the harsh realities of these times in his work. Some of his most famous work originated from his World War One experiences (after beginning his art studies at the Dresden School of Arts and Crafts in 1910) where he fought on various fronts in France and Russia. Abnormally Dix concentrated on portraying the energy and spectacle of war and only represented the true horrors of war in the post-war years, when he returned to Dresden. As well as grotesquely and starkly depicting the realities of post-war German society, he also began working with portraiture, which as his career developed, became famous for its evil eye as he always emphasised the weaknesses and worse characteristics of his sitters from whatever class of society they came from, friends or strangers. In these early years, Dix's style was predominantly realist in keeping with the rise of the Neue Sachlichkeit movement in Germany at the time. Listings wanted by Art Brokerage.
