Otto Dix (1891-1969), Portrait of the Laryngologist Dr. Mayer-Hermann, 1926. Oil and tempera on wood, 149.2 x 99.1 cm (58 3/4 x 39 in.) The Museum of Modern Art, New York. Gift of Philip Johnson, 1932. © 2010 Artists Rights Society (ARS), New York/VG Bild-Kunst, Bonn.
NEW YORK, NY.- From March 11 to August 30, 2010, Neue Galerie New York presents “Otto Dix,” the first one-man museum exhibition of works by this major German artist ever held in North America. Organized by Olaf Peters, Professor of Modern Art History and Art Theory at the Martin-Luther-University Halle-Wittenberg, the show contains more than 100 masterpieces from the United States, Canada, and Europe. After its run at the Neue Galerie, the exhibition will travel to the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts.

More than almost any other German painter, Otto Dix (1891-1969) and his works have profoundly influenced the popular notion of the Weimar Republic. His paintings were among the most graphic visual representatives of that period, exposing with unsparing and wicked wit the instability and contradictions of the time.

The exhibition addresses four themes. The first is Dix’s traumatic experiences as a soldier in World War I. The second is portraiture, a genre at which the artist excelled. The third is sexuality, a key theme in the Dix oeuvre. The fourth is religious and allegorical painting. The show includes the work that Dix is best know for—paintings from the so-called “golden Weimar years”—but to contextualize them, it also includes Dix’s work from the early 1920s, as well as his later work, produced as veiled protest against the Third Reich.
