Fit for Active Serv George Grosz’s Long War

Beginning in the First World War and culminating in the Second, the art and thought of German artist George Grosz became increasingly politicized and reflected a harsh indictment of modern Germany. This paper focuses on Grosz’s experience of the “Long War,” by examining his own words in correspondence and other writings and his paintings and political caricatures, which often reflect his excoriating view of Germany through a gendered lens.
