Otto Dix at AGNSW

War: The Prints of Otto Dix

22 August - 26 October 2008
Project gallery, Ground Level

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.
