George Grosz

In Germany on September 9, 2009 at 8:27 pm

The Berlin-born Grosz was a major player in the Weimar art scene, and is renowned today for his biting caricatures of German life in the 1920s and 30s. A member of the Communist Party, and fiercely anti-Nazi, he emigrated to the United States in 1932 just before Hitler’s rise to power.

His artwork can be seen at MoMA in New York City, the Hirshhorn Museum in Washington DC, the Art Institute of Chicago, and many others.
