George Grosz in Dallas

In 1952 George Grosz, the expatriate German dadaist and satirist, was invited to Dallas by Leon Harris, Jr., the young vice president of the Harris and Company department store. Harris had commissioned Grosz to create a series of paintings illustrating the landscape, economy, and society of Dallas for the store’s 65th anniversary celebrations. Grosz’s series, called Impressions of Dallas, was exhibited at the Dallas Museum of Fine Arts in Fair Park in October 1952 and then in New York in 1954, but have since remained almost forgotten.

This was a fantastic show. If you have an iPad, I highly recommend downloading the wonderful e-catalog — it’s the first electronic publication that the museum has produced, and it includes all the individual pieces, plus tons of extra photos, background information, and Dallas history. Oh, and it’s free. How I wish every museum was so generous!
