George Grosz: The Stick Men

This elegant publication commemorates the transcontinental exhibition George Grosz: The Stick Men, which was co-curated by Das kleine Grosz Museum in Berlin and The Heckscher Museum of Art in Huntington, New York. The accompanying catalogue, featuring 24 plates showcasing the German √©migr√© George Grosz’s oil paintings and watercolor sketches from the 1930s through the 1950s, illustrate the vices and flaws of humanity he observed whilst living in an impoverished interwar Berlin and attempt to reckon with the horrors of the Holocaust experienced from a physical, if not psychological remove, as a resident of the safe enclave of Huntington. The texts within, authored by distinguished German and American art historians, offer an insightful point of view on the artist’s oeuvre.
