The Painter Otto Dix by NausetSouth
The Painter Otto Dix
Platinum Carbon Black Ink and Golden High Flow tech ink on paper / Dix, 1891-1969 was one of the greatest 20th century painters. He justifiably claimed to have "invented" "New Objectivity." He was a combat veteran of WWI, and his most famous works depict the horror of war and the decay of society in the post war Germany of the 1920's and 30's. His work was declared "degenerate" by The NAZI's and he was forced into internal exile and forbidden from painting anything but landscapes. In the last days of WWII he was drafted into the German Army and eventually became a POW in allied France. After the war he refused to be excluded from any part of his country and he lived and worked in both West Germany and The GDR. The politics of art were such that he was shunned for not painting politically correct work from the perspective of either The East or The West. This drawing depicts him during this tragic second internal exile.

Well I just checked off a bucket list item that's been hanging out there for over 25 years, and I got to do it with my daughter. We completed a swim crossing of The Hellespont from Europe to Asia in Turkey. It is a 4.5 km open water crossing involving very strong current. It is rich in history and legend. Names associated with this waterway include Xerxies, Alexander The Great, Hero & Leander, Jason and The Argonauts and Lord Byron who was the first documented person to have swum the channel. On the Asian shore is the site of Ancient Troy and on the European side, the WWI battle of Gallipoli was fought.
