Week 4 Part 2 GEORGE GROSZ

Looking at your research notes from last entry, pull out some words.

Write them down.

Block them out a la Grosz.

George Grosz, Eva, 1918

De-form some human figures throughout.  Do it in thin felt pen.  Try not to hesitate.  Distort.  Be ugly.

The painter once believed in something, but now he paints only a hole without meaning, without anything- nothing but nothingness, the nothingness of our time.

– George Grosz
