Dix, Otto (German painter and printmaker, 1891-1969)

Note: Known for his scenes of war from during and after serving as a machine-gunner during World War I. His work became controversial and heavily politicized from the 1920s. He is also known for his nudes and for his portraits of Germany's literary and theatrical bohemia and its patrons. Dix was a founder-member of the Dresdner Sezession Gruppe 1919, a group of radical Expressionist and Dada artists and writers. His later work includes landscapes and paintings of biblical themes. Dix was unusual in his ability to negotiate between the regimes of West and East Germany, making yearly trips to Dresden, appointed to the academies of both West and East Berlin, and the recipient of major awards in both the Federal Republic of Germany and the German Democratic Republic.
