Otto Dix is deemed as one of the most important representatives of the New Objectivity not least, due to his “Great City-Triptych” in (1927/28). After his service as volunteer during the first world war, he studied at Kunstgewerbeschule in Dresden and later, at the Kunstakademie in Düsseldorf. Stylistically, he followed initially the expressionism, belonged since 1920 to the Dadaism movement and developed an increasingly realistic and unsparing painting manner.

In 1933, because of the National-Socialist movements was forced to give up his professor position at the Kunstakademie Dresden. In 1936, the artist retired to Hemmenhofen am Bodensee, where he dedicated himself to landscape painting.

His ambivalent and engaged realism did not lose its impact even today.

Artistic movement that replaced the Impressionism in the early 20th century.

Expressionism is the German form of the art revolution in painting, graphics and sculpture, which found its precursor in the works of Paul Cézanne, Vincent van Gogh and Paul Gauguin in the late 19th century. The Expressionists tried to advance to the basic elements of painting. With vibrant, unbroken colors in large areas and with the emphasis on line and the resulting targeted suggestive expressiveness they fought against the artistic taste established by bourgeoisie.

The most important representatives of Expressionism were the founders of "Die Brücke" (The Bridge): Ernst Ludwig Kirchner, Erich Heckel, Karl Schmidt-Rottluff, Max Pechstein, Otto Mueller and Franz Marc, August Macke, among others.

Masters of Viennese Expressionism are Egon Schiele and Oskar Kokoschka.

The Fauvism is the French form of Expressionism.
