Description

In 1952, expatriate German artist George Grosz was invited to Dallas by Leon Harris, Jr., the young vice president of the A. Harris & Company department store. Harris commissioned Grosz to create for the store a series of paintings illustrating the landscape, economy, and society of Dallas. In 2012, on the 60th anniversary of the series’ debut, the Dallas Museum of Art has published the online catalogue "Flower of the Prairie: George Grosz in Dallas," in conjunction with an exhibition of the same title. The catalogue describes Grosz’s career in the postwar years and the history of the "Impressions of Dallas" commission, paying particular attention to the fraught cultural and political landscape of Dallas in the early 1950s. Here the "Impressions of Dallas" series is reproduced in its entirety for the first time, alongside many other paintings, watercolors, and drawings by Grosz, as well as a rich selection of historic photographs.
