The Online Otto Dix Project

A German Artist and Print Maker

The Foundry

Year: 1919


The Foundry was hot and the air was foul but it supported the family. Otto's father toiled there for most of his life. Its bricks are dark from soot and its yard is filled with scrap, yet through the Dixian filter, the Foundry is quite attractive.

    I was wondering if the subject matter himself commissioned the artist to draw the doctor or not? thanks
