The Portland Museum of Art will display 30 pieces of German prints from between both World Wars, highlighting the portfolio of George Grosz in an exhibition titled The
Robbers: German Art in a Time of Crisis. The works depict 1920s Berlin through modern era figures that suggest a social discord of war, greed and poverty that undermined the stability of the Weimar Republic. Grosz’s work caused a social intervention and questioned traditional German identity through the artist’s use of satire and biting realism.the collection will be on display until July 15.
