New York, Neue Galerie Museum for German and Austrian Art

The work of iconic 20th century German painter Otto Dix receives its first solo
museum exhibition ever held in North America. The show contains more than 100 masterpieces from the United States, Canada, and Europe; after the Neue Galerie it will travel to the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts.

Otto Dix's paintings are among the most graphic visual representatives of Weimar Republic,
exposing with unsparing and wicked wit the instability and contradictions of the time. This exhibition will include the paintings that Dix is best know for, paintings from the so-called “golden Weimar years“, but they will be further contextualized with the inclusion of work from the early 1920s, as well as his later more allegorical work, produced as a veiled protest against the Third Reich.
