Between 1921 and 1933 Otto Dix (1891-1969) created many portraits of his lover and later wife, Martha. Representative paintings, watercolors, drawings, and humorous sketches show Martha Dix in various roles: as a sophisticated, emancipated woman; as lover, muse, and intellectual companion; as mother and center point of the family.
In Bildnis Frau Martha Dix (Portrait of Mrs. Martha Dix), whom Dix married in 1923, the artist emphasizes, for instance, not only her distinctive facial features, but also her avant-gardist haircut. The monochrome color scheme and the accentuation of the two-dimensional image surface support her seemingly iconic presence as does the concomitant exaggeration and simultaneous reduction of details.
When Martha Dix was born in 1815, in Danville, Pittsylvania, Virginia, United States, her father, Thomas Dix, was 34 and her mother, Jane Mickleborough, was 33. She married William Bridgewater on 7 November 1839, in Cooper, Missouri, United States. They were the parents of at least 4 sons and 3 daughters.
When Martha Dix was born on 4 January 1745, in Littleton, Middlesex, Massachusetts, United States, her father, Jonathan Dix, was 34 and her mother, Sarah Shattuck, was 25. She married Capt. Peter Fletcher on 25 November 1762, in Littleton, Middlesex, Massachusetts, United States. They were the parents of at least 4 sons and 2 daughters.
In turn, Erfurth immortalised Dix on numerous occasions and in different dress, together with his wife Martha, their children and parents. In addition, Erfurth, who owned a gallery in Dresden, was extremely interested in acquiring works on paper by Dix, while the painter in turn used Erfurth’s photographs of World War I as the basis for his series of etchings on the war.
