ECLIPSE OF THE SUN: ART OF THE WEIMAR REPUBLIC
This special exhibition takes its title from a painting that is the centerpiece of the show: George Grosz’s monumental 1926 canvas Eclipse of the Sun, on loan from the Heckscher Museum of Art in Huntington, New York.
Work by Grosz will be the highlight of the presentation, including additional paintings as well as an important group of works on paper by the artist. These will be complemented by a selection of searing portraits created by Otto Dix in the 1920s and early 1930s. Other artists represented in the presentation include Max Beckmann, Otto Griebel, Christian Schad, Rudolf Schlichter, and Georg Scholz. The majority of the works in the show will be drawn from the extended holdings of the Neue Galerie New York.
