Dix & die Kunst des Porträts
tweetalige versie : Duits-Engels
Otto Dix (1891–1969) is renowned for his masterful portraits, characterized by their grotesque quality and candidness. Match explores the art of portraiture influenced by Dix’s directness. It brings together over 60 works by the artist, including self-portraits and portraits of his family, artists and notable members of German society. Comparing Dix’s painting with such old masters as Cranach, the authors consider how his technique has in turn influenced such modern and contemporary artists as Francis Bacon, Gerhard Richter and Wolfgang Tillmans. Superb reproductions of works from all stages of Dix’s 50-year career are complemented by texts focusing on self-portraiture, family, Dix’s contemporaries and modern-day portrait painting, among other themes.
