George Grosz produced a broad
range of graphic and painted works, many
which were socially critical and verist.
Although his earliest and later paintings
were mainly Expressionist, there are two
connections with Magic Realism. The first
during the early 1920s, in which his works
were related to Pittura Metafisica. The
second period covered the last half of the
1920s, and pertains to his many portraits
executed in the style of Neue Sachlichkeit.
During the latter period Portrait of
John Foerate, Man with Glass Eyes is
perhaps the most magical.
