War: The Prints of Otto Dix

-

This exhibition showcases Otto Dix’s war portfolio Der krieg 1924, a collection of 51 etchings with aquatint which is regarded as one of the great masterpieces of 20th-century printmaking. Consciously modelled on Goya’s equally famous and equally devastating Los desastres de la guerra (The disasters of war), the portfolio captures Dix’s horror of, and fascination with, the experience of war.

Art Exhibition previously on at Art Gallery of New South Wales in Sydney precinct, New South Wales, Australia.
From Friday 22 August 2008 to Sunday 26 October 2008
