Otto Dix was one of Germany's most important 20th century whose work started in the expressionist style and evolved into a harshly realistic style. His service in World Wars One and Two had a profound impact on his work. Here his home overlooking an arm of Lake Constance was his studio. There are reproductions of many of his most famous pieces here and one or two originals on loan from the main Stuttgart art museum. However, anyone interested in the extraordinary life of this genius will find a visit here most enlightening. Throughout is home are small scenes in black and white which you point a smart phone at and then you get an oral commentary about Dix's art, his family life and the influences that drove his creative process. One of his grandchildren provides fascinating commentary on the artist himself. The commentary is in German, and I do not know if an English version is available. However, if you understand German to a reasonable degree, the commentary is not only interesting but quite easy to follow.
