HAPPY BIRTHDAY Georges Seurat & Otto Dix! Georges Seurat (2 December 1859 – 29 March 1891) is noted for devising the painting techniques known as chromoluminarism and pointillism. His large-scale work, "A Sunday Afternoon on the Island of La Grande Jatte" (1884–1886), altered the direction of modern art by initiating Neo-impressionism, and is one of the icons of late 19th-century painting. Wilhelm Heinrich Otto Dix (2 December 1891 – 25 July 1969) was a German painter and printmaker, noted for his ruthless and harshly realistic depictions of Weimar society and the brutality of war. Along with George Grosz, he is widely considered one of the most important artists of the Neue Sachlichkeit.

Visualizing life in Berlin during the Weimar Republic: The Shock and Awe of George Grosz
This is a game to keep art alive. Post a comment, and I'll give you an artist. It doesn't matter if you don't know them, just search for them, and post your favourite work by them, along with this text. Steve Dempsey gave me Otto Dix, the German painter whose works depict some of the worst aspects of the Weimar Republic society. Harsh and brutal, his images show an extremely unflattering view of the era and the preceding war. For a gaming angle, together with George Grosz he was one of the inspirations for my long Cthulhu in Weimar campaign. Also, check out these "Stormtroops".
Dadaism was anti-art, social movement that sprang up in 1916. Its birthplace was Switzerland, a haven for anti-war sentiment, but the influence of Dada quickly spread throughout New York, Berlin, Zurich, Barcelona, Cologne, and Paris. The Dada moverment concentrated on tearing down the current standards in perception of art, modern aesthetics in culture, and society's value systems. Dadaism was a rebellion against producing the horrors of war. In a sense, the movement was a protest against all of what Western society and culture had become up the point at that time.  Dadaism materialized in various forms throughout the early 20th century, most particularly in manifestos written by individual Dadaist camps throughout the world's major cities. Most notable is the Dadaist Manifestos written by Tristan Tzara, Franz Jung, George Grosz, Marcel Janco, Richard Huelsenbeck, Gerhard Preis, and Raoul Hausman in Paris in April, 1918. This particular manifesto sums up the movement in an almost nonsensical manner. ** ...
Heinrich Maria Davringhausen (October 21, 1894 – December 13, 1970) was a German painter associated with the New Objectivity. Davringhausen was born in Aachen. Mostly self-taught as a painter, he began as a sculptor, studying briefly at the Düsseldorf Academy of Arts before participating in a group exhibition at Alfred Flechtheim's gallery in 1914. He also traveled to Ascona with his friend the painter Carlo Mense that year. At this early stage his paintings were influenced by the expressionists, especially August Macke.[1] Exempted from military service in World War I, he lived in Berlin from 1915 to 1918, forming friendships with George Grosz and John Heartfield. In 1919 he had a solo exhibition at Hans Goltz' Galerie Neue Kunst in Munich, and exhibited in the first "Young Rhineland" exhibition in Düsseldorf. Davringhausen became a member of the "Novembergruppe" and gained some prominence among the artists representing a new tendency in German art of the postwar period. He was asked to take part in ...
Let's talk ART. Next weekend, I am going to see the Toulouse Laetrec exhibition at the Australian National Gallery. I think the first time I got interested in art was as a teenager in 1988 when I sometimes used to sneak away from my boarding school and hike down to the Gallery to look at the Warhols and Lichtensteins. I liked Pop Art. I think Warhol was a bit of a *** though, in his personal relationships. In my late teens I discovered I liked the French Impressionists - Monet, Manet, Renoir and Cezanne. I discovered the German Expressionists, George Grosz and the apocalyptic renderings of Otto Dix. I like the Australian Modernists - Albert Tucker, Sydney Nolan, Russell Drysdale. As a self taught art afficionado I am not sure where Picasso fits, but I like some of his stuff. Ditto Salvador Dali. I have a copy of his amazing painting "Christ of St John of the Cross" on my wall at home. The A4 sized print does not do justice to the two story sized painting on display at the Museum of Religeon in ...
Romare Bearden was best known as an Illustrator and Painter. He was born on September 02, 1911 and died on March 12, 1988. Before he was a renowned artist, Romare Bearden was also a talented baseball player. He was recruited by the Philadelphia Athletics on the pretext that he would agree to pass as white. He turned down the offer, instead choosing to work on his art. Romare Bearden is considered one of the most important American artists of the 20th century. Born in North Carolina, he landed in New York City and studied with George Grosz. His early paintings were realistic with religous themes. Later, his works depict aspects of family culture in a semiabstract collage and Cubist style. He was also a songwriter and designed sets for the Alvin Ailey Company.
The canonical work of Constructivism was Vladimir Tatlin's proposal for the Monument to the Third International (1919) which combined a machine aesthetic with dynamic components celebrating technology such as searchlights and projection screens. Gabo publicly criticized Tatlin's design saying Either create functional houses and bridges or create pure art, not both. This had already caused a major controversy in the Moscow group in 1920 when Gabo and Pevsner's Realistic Manifesto asserted a spiritual core for the movement. This was opposed to the utilitarian and adaptable version of Constructivism held by Tatlin and Rodchenko. Tatlin's work was immediately hailed by artists in Germany as a revolution in art: a 1920 photograph shows George Grosz and John Heartfield holding a placard saying 'Art is Dead – Long Live Tatlin's Machine Art', while the designs for the tower were published in Bruno Taut's magazine Fruhlicht. Tatlin's tower started a period of exchange of ideas between Moscow and Berlin, somethin ...

ARTnews has won the Society of the Silurians 2012 Excellence in Journalism Arts/Culture/Magazines Award for its article “MoMA’s Problematic Provenances,” by William D. Cohan, which appeared in the December 2011 issue. After a six-month investigation, Cohan found conflict and ambiguity in the history of three paintings by George Grosz at the Museum of Modern Art and in the history of the museum. Cohan wrote that the museum houses artworks with questionable provenances, many of which were seized by the Nazis from German museums, from art dealers, or from artists themselves before finding their way into MoMA’s collection. Cohan embedded the Grosz paintings in a saga of massive art theft and displacement. He related how the paintings were stolen from a Jewish art dealer in 1933 and how they were dispersed and eventually, after passing through many hands, purchased for MoMA by its founding director, Alfred H. Barr Jr. The story revolved around Barr and his friend, the émigré art dealer Curt Valentin, ...
