Year: 1922

Description: J. B. Neumann was an art dealer and connoisseur. In the early 1920s, he recognized Dix's talent and displayed his work in his German galleries. When he opened a New York gallery, Neumann introduced Dix to a new audience in the United States.

Dix showed his appreciation by portraying Neumann in a series of unflattering portraits.
