Self-portrait as Mars
Selbstbildnis mit Artillerie-Helm

Year: 1915

Description:

In the second year of war, he depcits himself as the God of War with angles borrowed from cubism. In this scene, death is abundant. Horses rear and flee. Buildings burst open and cities crumble. Yet Dix remains alive. Survival under such circumstances might give anyone a messiah complex.
