OTTO DIX, 1891-1969. Tate Gallery, London, 1992. Organized by Galerie der Stadt Stuttgart in association with Nationalgalerie, Staatliche Museen Preussischer Kulturbesitz, Berlin. Distributed in the U.S.A. by University of Washington Press, Seattle. 230 pp. with 184 ills. (134 col.). 30 x 24 cm. LC 93-173165 ISBN 1854370936 In English.
Accompanying a major exhibition of some 150 canvases and works on paper spanning the career of renowned German painter Dix, this catalogue presents a reappraisal of the artist's veristic style and harshly critical themes in relation to the socially and politically engaged works of Grosz, Heartfield and other figures with whom Dix is frequently grouped. Excellent reproductions and extensive examinations of the caustic portraits, brothel scenes and images of war that dominate Dix's oeuvre are accompanied by texts describing the stages of his career and by four essays discussing the cultural climate in Germany during the interwar years, Dix's politically and artistically conservative views, his strong interest in the writings of Nietzsche, and the varied critical response to his work.
