    I just looked him up and the picture you shared predicted what I expected–German artist who portrayed the Weimar Republic and war years with realism. It reminded me of some of the work I’ve seen done by POWs and concentration camp inmates of the period.

      I hope you found some of the hidden gems in his work, for although he does remind one of other German expressionists, he wasn’t fully integrated into those ranks. I find him an expert illustrator and a man who saw the horrors of WWI (he fought as an officer of the German army) and really never got over them. Later he was imprisoned by the Gestapo and then, after WWII, he never really found his way home to an art movement, but he did some incredible works. Thank you so much! I hope you are having a great Easter weekend and I wish you the best always.

    The poor man saw and endured a great deal.

    Wow! I can see why F. This is thought provoking stuff, and yet I’ve never heard of him before. I’ll need to look him up, and thanks again for introducing me to another fine artist.

    I’m not familiar with Otto Dix so I had to do some research. Considered one of the best realist Of his time his artwork is impressive.

    he survived a lot and the imprint these experiences had on him, clearly showed in his work

    A new one for me but looks promising

    I had seen a few of his pieces before but never spent any time looking for more. I appreciate this opportunity to see more of his volume of work and better understand the life he led. With all he had lived through, I am surprised his work in general is not much darker. Exceptional illustrator of the things that he had witnessed and felt.

      I quite agree my friend. An amazing artist. Thank you and Happy Easter to you!
      All the best,

    Tenía mucho interés en ver este video. La primera vez que estuve en Paris vi en el Museo D’orsay una obra de Otto dix, no sé por qué se me quedo grabada la imagen del retrato que le hizo a . Sylvia von Harden, Un cuadro que no he olvidado nunca ni a su autor. Igual ni siquiera es importante, pero yo me quede con él.
    Un saludo.

    Me he comido algunas tildes, pero ya no hay remedio. Me equivoco mucho.

      Me alegro Azurea que te haya gustado. Hay cuadros así, que no se nos borran de la mente y que siguen en nuestra memoria para siempre…a mi igual me encanta la obra de Otto Dix y creo que ha influido mucho en mis propios cuadros y poemas…

    Such sad and disturbing images. He must have seen the world as a very dark place.

    • Francisco Bravo Cabrera · 15 Days Ago

      I think that after going through a war, as a combatant and then a totalitarian regime, where the Gestapo jailed him and second war…can make one see the world pretty distorted. But a brilliant artist, one of my favourite ones Anna. Thank you so much! Take good care and all the best,

    Unquestionably talented but few of his works please me. Thank you for reminding me. Well done, as usual, sir. Are you not asked to do a professorshiop at a university?
