Otto Dix exhibition

A quote from Otto Dix.

I am a visual person and not a philosopher. 

That is why I am constantly taking stock in my pictures.

I show what is really happening and what has to be said in the name of truth.

There is an exhibition of Otto Dix's works currently taking place in Düsseldorf. The exhibition runs until May 14.

Dix was born in Gera in 1891 in the German Empire and died in Singen in 1969 in the Federal Republic of Germany.

He had a close associaiton with Düsseldorf.

Anyone who ever utters the word 'truth' should spend some time looking at Dix's works.
