From the flap copy:

In these memoirs, George Grosz, on of the great figures of contemporary art, has told the story of his life in human as well as in artistic terms. Born in a German town, the son of an inn-keeper, Grosz tells of his boyhood, his first attempt at drawing and his days in a German art school. With him we meet the early and now forgotten academic painters, the disciples of Dadaism, the Pascins and Modiglianis, the Bohemians of the Latin Quarter, and the countless personalities in education, art, literature and business of America and Europe. He has also included a full account of his experiences in the United States.

A sense of sly humor permeates his work. There is nothing grim about Grosz. A sly satirist at the drawing board, he is no less biting with the written word. His unsparing self-criticism makes this autobiography a revealing document of a man who believes that he individual must always be the main cog in the machine called civilization.

Since the end of the first World War when his graphic and scathingly satirical
Ecce Homo was first published in Germany, his fame has preceded him wherever he has gone. His continued opposition to the Nazi party and his refusal to make compromises with any system of government that represses the artistsí right of expression, resulted in his having to flee from Germany in the early 30ís. He now lives and paints in the United States.
