About this artwork

In a 1966 interview about his work, Otto Dix explained: “The artist wants to work so that others can see what this kind of thing was like. I primarily depicted the horrible consequences of war. I believe no one else has seen the reality of that war as I have: the privations, the wounds, the suffering. I chose truthful reportage of war; I wanted to show the destroyed land, the corpses, the wounds.”
