I bought an old catalog of drawings by the German expressionist Otto Dix in the used and for sale section at the MECA library. They routinely sell off their old art books for cheap. I always enjoy seeing artists' drawings, especially artists whose most well known work is their paintings. This catalog is entirely in German. Have fun translating!

These are wonderful! I love the German Expressionists and Dix is one of my favorites.

Do you know Sue Coe? I often think of Dix when I see her work.

What a find! I am also a huge fan of the German Expressionists. I bought a great book recently of German Expressionist Woodcuts published by Dover... it's wonderful.

Bill Sharp is right, Dix and Sue Coe do have similarities. I saw her show years back at Lewis and Clark College in Portland... powerful stuff.
