George Grosz: Berlin-New York
A collection of over 500 pieces by George Grosz, Berlin Dadaist and New Objectivist, are assembled in a comprehensive monograph by his estate's director.
The images used in the film were my first introduction to Grosz's work. Fortunately, last month Skira released a robust new packaging of George Grosz: Berlin-New York by Ralph Jentsch, the director of the Grosz estate (Grosz died in 1959). This lush and comprehensive monograph includes over 500 illustrations, drawings, and paintings. Additionally, there are previously unpublished personal photographs of the painter and two essays by Grosz scholars Enrico Crispolti and Philippe Dagen.
