( Berlin, 1893 - Berlin, 1959 )

Portrait of elegant Lady

Other view :



Born in 1893 in Berlin, educated in Dresde in his hometown.
He started working as a cartoonist satirical magazines he joined the dadaists at the end of world war one.
In 1925, he was temporary-close to the "New Sachlichkeit" movement.
He went to New-York in 1932 and settled down forgood in the states in 1933, Five years later he be came an american citizen. he lived in Huntington, long Island. Grosz belongs to this category of artists who, during world war one, try to serve their political ideas with the principales of expressionism. In his carved works, he mastly attcked the rotten " bourgoisie " of the big city.
With an obstinate violence, he criticized the human beast and its selfishness by his anti-esthetic approach, he turned his art into a ruthless weapon. If his style, based on an expressive realism, comes somewhat near the "New Sachlichkeit " it also contains some surrealist éléments.
