Realist, Expressionist, Dadaist, traditionalist working in the vein of the German Old Masters, Otto Dix (1891-1969) was all and much more than these labels suggest. His career stretched from Wilhelmine Germany before the First World War, through the war itself, the revolution and counter-revolutions of 1918-20, the Weimar Republic, the Third Reich, the Second World War and the postwar split into two countries, East and West, holding up a mirror to the troubled times and extraordinary characters that his unerring eye fixed upon. The mirror may not have produced an exact photographic likeness, it was certainly rarely flattering, but it always focused on what was essential and most characteristic, and it produced memorable images, such as the "Portrait of the Journalist Sylvia von Harden" 1926 or the "Metropolis (Tripych)" 1928.
Dix was one of the greatest German artists this century and this catalogue, produced to accompany the major exhibition held at the Tate Gallery, seeks to introduce him to an English-speaking audience and to do justice to his many-faceted career. All the works in the exhibition are described and analysed by Keith Hartley, Assistant Keeper at the Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art in Edinburgh and Sarah O'Brien Twohig, lecturer and writer, in what should prove to be a unique and valuable contribution to the literature. In Addition there are essays by Keith Hartley, Sarah O'Brien Twohig, Dr Frank Whitford, writer and broadcaster, Dr Iain Boyd Whyte, Director of the University of Edinburgh Centre for Architectural History and Theory and Dr Ursula Zeller, Curator at the Galerie der Stadt Stuttgart, covering Dix's achievements as well as many aspects of the political and social scene in Germany.
