Otto Dix fue un pintor de la Nueva Objetividad y el Expresionismo alemanes.

El trabajo pictórico de Otto Dix abarca una gran diversidad de estilos, aunque el gran público conoce, principalmente, sus pinturas sobre la guerra. Dibujante excepcional, Otto Dix nos ha dejado 500 bocetos y diversos retratos, además de lienzos y acuarelas, que, sin duda alguna, evocan la época renacentista. Y es que Dix es, en efecto, uno de los grandes pintores alemanes del siglo XX. La mayor parte de su obra se halla expuesta en el Museo de Arte de Stuttgart.
