The Online Otto Dix Project

A German Artist and Print Maker

Crater field near Dontrien lit up by flares
Trichterfeld bei Dontrien, von Leuchtkugeln erhellt

Year: 1924

Description: Already by plate number four we begin to understand this is no ordinary series of etchings. Throughout the series, Dix demonstrates a commanding use of print techniques with etching, dry point and aquatint. Here a night time flare illuminates a lunar landscape.

Provenance: Der Krieg; #4
National Gallery of Austrailia
