George Grosz – Die Jahre in Amerika
George Grosz (1893–1959) spent more than half of his productive career as an artist—twenty-seven years—living and working in theUnited States. Published fifty years after his death, this is the first book devoted to this important period. On the basis of over one hundred full-page, richly documented paintings, watercolors, and drawings from all of his principle groups of works, the widespread opinion is refuted that Grosz’s work lost its much-admired bite of his years in Berlin after he moved to New York. While his apocalyptic paintings prove that he was a visionary opponent of war and oppression, his unrivaled illustrations for the great authors of the period and for magazines such as Esquire testify to Grosz’s mastery of drawing.
