Wilhelm Heinrich Otto Dix (1891 – 1969) was a German painter and print maker, noted for his ruthless and harshly realistic depictions of Weimar society and the brutality of war.

He was solider who fought and survived World War I, earning himself the Iron Cross. He made a name for himself by painting in a “New Objective” style after the war. He was one of the many degenerate artists of the Weimar period.
