Otto Dix – Hommage à Martha
Between 1921 and 1933 Otto Dix (1891-1969) created many portraits of his lover and later wife, Martha. Representative paintings, watercolors, drawings, and humorous sketches show Martha Dix in various roles: as a sophisticated, emancipated woman; as lover, muse, and intellectual companion; as mother and center point of the family.
Martha's portraits show more than just the art of Otto Dix in its many facets. They also reflect the urban flair, traditional and new gender roles, fashion, music, dance, and the desire for freedom in both art and life in the 1920s. The book and exhibition have been produced in close cooperation with the Otto Dix Foundation, Vaduz, which was founded in 1983 by Martha Dix.
