Exhibition Overview

The drawings and watercolors assembled in Made in Germany span the years after World War I to the early 1980s and focus on the human figure and face in widely different interpretations. Among the works featured are Otto Dix's knife-sharp image of his first love Marga Kummer, Ludwig Meidner's loosely expressionistic bust of a moody young girl, Paul Klee's black-outlined girl in mourning, and Anselm Kiefer's disembodied and bleeding head of a woman evoking the battlefields of World War II. Made in Germany also includes works on paper by Georg Kolbe, Karl Hubbuch, Hanna Nagel, Emil Nolde, Sigmar Polke, Jörg Immendorf, A. R. Penck, and George Baselitz.
