Weekly artist series: Week 8 Part 1 #OttoDix

Week 8 Part 1 Otto Dix

OTTO DIX:

Wilhelm Heinrich Otto Dix 2 December 1891 – 25 July 1969) was a German painter and printmaker, noted for his ruthless and harshly realistic depictions of Weimar society and the brutality of war. Along with George Grosz, he is widely considered one of the most important artists of the Neue Sachlichkeit. [source]

 

I adore the figures of Otto Dix.

I’ve posted about the following interactive art piece, Apologies to Otto Dix (Frida Kahlo/Otto Dix study), before.  Its journey continues.

I started the piece awhile back and first allowed people to add to during my March 10th event, the April 3 outdoor art market, then my June 23 event, then with Tracey Bell and lately at ART HEALS!  It’s still in progress.
