This research paper is about Otto Dix and his most notable paintings relating to European Social and Political Art of the 20th Century era. What makes Otto Dix a phenomenal artist is how he projected his voice through his paintings. This was a very rare case during that time and it is still important till this day. This was an extremely important era across the world and through out history which included World War 1, World War 2 and most importantly the involvement of Germany. During these time is when many artists such as Otto Dix and George Grosz careers were born, and the Neue Sachlichkeit, or New Objectivity movement began. Otto Dix is known to be one of the most important artists of The New Objectivity movement. Some of the art pieces that I will be researching in this paper are, Seven Deadly Sins (1933), This is a very creative and detailed painting about the true fears of the war and Adolf Hitler. At the time of painting he did not fully draw Hitler out of fear but once the war was over he went back to his painting and finished it by drawing in the Hitler mustache. Skat Players (Card-Playing War Cripples) (1920), this painting was about the veterans of the war. It showed what the war was about and who was truly behind the scene and it exploited their true intentions. The War (1929-32). This paining is all about the aftermath of the war and what it had caused. Although Dix has many beautiful and meaningful paintings I believe these are some of the most important ones relating to the living situations and society of that era.
