Dear Art Educators,

There are some good images in this New York article:

Amid Shadows of War, a Cultural Decadence
By ROBERTA SMITH
"Presented in seven galleries devoid of fanfare or froufrou, "Glitter
and Doom" contains just more than 100 paintings and drawings by 10
artists, prominent among them George Grosz, Christian Schad, Rudolf
Schlichter and Karl Hubbuch, and most conspicuously the unrelentingly
savage Otto Dix and his magnificent other, Max Beckmann. With Dix
represented by 53 works and Beckmann holding his own at 17, the two
preside over this exhibition like Picasso and Braque, except that they
are equals."

Several more images online on Met site:
