Born to a working-class family at the turn of the twentieth century, he hurled himself into the art world of the prewar era, and fought and drew on the front during World War I- after 1918, he gave that war perhaps the most honest face bestowed on it by an artist.

During the Weimar Republic, Dix emerged as an enfant terrible, a dandy and an urban sophisticate, but he was also a respected professor and pedagogue, until he was driven from his position by the Nazis a few months after they came to power. Ostracized and threatened under the Nazi regime, Dix retreated to Lake Constance, where he began painting in the broader brushstokes that characterize his final phase.

Published in Hatje Cantzs new Art to Read series, Philipp Gutbrods expertly written biography examines an eventful life and a multifaceted oeuvre.
