For many years, while giving several of my libraries to charities, as I moved from one to another working site, I clung to my copy of George Grosz's Ecce Homo, his early portfolio of drawings and watercolors in book form. I still have it, along with the growing bookshelf of books with and about his art.
While he did much other work in Germany and in the United States, to which he emigrated, while he was much respected by the American artists with whom he associated in his exile, it is still the politically inspired art for which he is best known and for which he is, and will be, best remembered.
While Otto Dix surpassed him in his articulation of the horrors of World War 1, having been through almost every moment of it as a combat machine gunner and leader of a machine gun squad, and Max Beckmann commanded far more respect for his penetrating insight and command of the tools of art in years further beyond those of the early Weimar period, neither they nor anyone else surpassed Grosz in biting visual commentary on the political scene of the post-war period. While a master of the graphic and watercolor arts, Grosz never reached the same level of skill or insight in his paintings. In that, Beckmann was his superior.
Without making comparison with the other major books available on his career, I am confident that one who seeks familiarity with that period of his life's work as well as the beginnings of his less vituperative career, will find ample reward in this volume.
Frank Whitford skillfully draws together strands of his life and personality useful in the effort to understand him but excels in the brief commentaries accompanying each drawing, print and watercolor. The pictures are quite good and are amply illustrative of the tenor of his approach.
Regrettably, the price of a new copy has multiplied exponentially in recent years, but, hopefully, decent copies are available at the lesser prices shown this date on Amazon.

After I had bought the Hans Hess , Herbert Bittner,Serge Sabarsky ,Beth Lewis Books, I bought this book as it was one of the first books to discuss and illustrate Grosz's work in theater. His drawings put him in the satirical art classification.But his work in theater was less traditional ,and it is here that he must be remembered as a Dadaist.Duchamp of course is best known as a dadaist..for his urinal for one. Hans Arp is always listed as the dadaist in the crossword puzzles.The Zurich (Arp for one) group is different than the Berlin group and the New York Dadaist such as Duchamp.The recent Skira book on Grosz has reproductions of Grosz's work in theater but the color reproductions are about equal in quality.This is a good book on Grosz but ,not as comprehensive as the Grosz New York - Berlin catalogue of the exhibition held in Rome Italy. Sorry ,it is higher in price!
