To highlight the significance of George Grosz’s Eclipse of the Sun as a critique of the corrupt Weimar government in 1920s Berlin, this exhibition places the painting in the context of other works from the Permanent Collection that depict themes of power, politics, and military aggression. Featured works include paintings about the American Revolution and the birth of America by Alonzo Chappel, the Franco-Prussian Warby Etienne Berne-Bellecour, and photographs from World War II by Russian photographer Mark Markov-Grinberg. Also included is Grosz’s Ecce Homo, a portfolio of 100 lithographs that presents a scathing portrait of Weimar society. This close look at Eclipse of the Sun is occasioned by its inclusion in the upcoming exhibition New Objectivity: Modern German Art during the Weimar Republic 1919-1933, to be held at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art in late 2015.
