The Online Otto Dix Project

A German Artist and Print Maker

Self-Portrait in Profile
Selbstporträt im Profil

Year: 1922

Description: Dix's treatment of himself was always less harsh than his treatment of others. This work is typical. While Dix certainly accentuates some features at the expense of others, he stresses the most manly ones, a square jaw, a protruding ridge.

Certainly we can categorize this piece as cariacture, but it's a flattering portrait nonetheless.

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