Gross before Grosz: The Early Years

Edited with text by Ralph Jentsch. Text by Juerg Judin, Pay Matthis Karstens, Mechthild Hagemann.

Previously unseen early works from the Weimar Republic's greatest chronicler and satirist

This volume is dedicated to the early life and career of the brilliant young artist Georg Ehrenfried Gross (1893–1959), who would later become known as George Grosz. Known for his politically charged paintings and caricatural depictions of Berlin life in the 1920s, the youthful Gross had a long way to go before changing his name and becoming the most popular and sharp-tongued chronicler of the Weimar Republic. Gross made his first oil paintings in 1912 while still a student, and by 1914 was working in a style deeply influenced by Expressionism, Futurism and popular illustration. Presenting over 50 works made between the years 1904 and 1917, all but a few exhibited for the first time ever, the inaugural exhibition of Das kleine Grosz Museum, and this accompanying catalog, trace the artistic and biographical trajectory of this great artist's journey.
