The Online Otto Dix Project

A German Artist and Print Maker

Portrait Of The Painter Adolf Uzarski

Year: 1923

Description: Adolf Uzarski was a German artist, illustrator and writer associated with the New Objectivity movement. In 1906, he moved to Düsseldorf where he enroled in the School of Arts and Crafts.

Like many young artists in Düsseldorf at the time, Uzarski spent a great deal of time in Johanna Ey's cafe. It was here that he met Otto Dix. Uzarski soon became one of the artists championed by Mother Ey. Otto Dix was another.

Uzarski was a handsome man whose attractiveness was lost by Dix's rendition. Here is rendered as a sort of subterranean troll with large hands and a greenish complexion.

Provenance: Kunstgalerie D�sseldorf
