The years in America 1933-1958
Everyone and everything is desiccated, seething, hissing, rumbling, blustering, blasting, beeping, whistling, ruddy, sweaty, vomiting, and working. George Grosz on New York
George Grosz (18931959) spent more than half of his creative careertwenty-seven yearsliving and working in the United States. Published fifty years after his death, this is the first book devoted to this important period of time. The evidence of over one hundred full-page, richly documented paintings, water colors, and drawings from all of the important groups of works refutes the widely spread viewpoint that Groszs work lost its much-admired bite after he moved to New York. While his apocalyptic paintings prove that he was a visionary opponent of war and oppression, his unrivaled illustrations for the great authors of the period and for magazines like Esquire testify to Groszs mastery of drawing.
