Otto Dix Original 1960 Lithograph “Mocking Christ”

Categories: ,

Evocative lithograph by Otto Dix (famously labeled by the nazis as a “degenerate” artist) made in 1960, and titled Mocking Jesus from his study of The Book of Matthew (Matthaus Evangelium). Originally distributed by Ferdinand Roten Galleries, Cambridge MA., it feels very much like one’s imaginings of East Berlin in the 40s, and without the title you’d be hard pressed to know that the subject was religious. Matted and framed. Measures 14 X 18 (art in matte-9 X 11).
