Grosz targeted a range of occupational and class types for scathing observation during the early Weimar years. These decidedly ugly denizens of the interwar Berlin street, which typically include pompous industrialists, strutting military leaders, and prostitutes, are often fragmented, truncated, and depicted in outline in cubo-futuristic juxtaposition with architectural fragments and other figures.Physical Description
In front, a woman wearing a hat depicted in profile faces to the left with three male figures behind her, one of which, depicted in profile and facing to the right, has the top of his head cut off; the background is comprised of architectural and figural fragments.Primary Object Classification Print Primary Object Typeblack and white printCollection AreaModern and ContemporaryRights
