Otto Dix

By Caroline Johnstone - Rating: 8/10

I’m slowly working my way through various artist monographs I have collected over the years. Up until now I had only looked at the pictures. This is the catalogue for a huge exhibition of art by Otto Dix that was held at the Tate Gallery. It’s filled with many great images and some biographical information about Dix. There are a number of essayists featured and they all had about the same story to tell. Dix didn’t lead that crazy of a life other than his time during World War I and his few entanglements with the Nazis regarding his “degenerate” art. This is, by no means, a complete overview of his art. There are a few plates that are labeled like, “he made 150 landscapes during this period… here is one of them.”
