Biography   George Grosz


/ GROSS /    click to hear
Best known for his Dada art and caustically satirical caricature works, Georg Ehrenfried Gross was born in Berlin in 1893, later changing his name to George Grosz.  Some consider him to be perhaps the most outstanding caricaturist and political satirist of the period following World War I.

His father was Karl Ehrenfried Gross, an innkeeper, and his mother's name was Marie Wilhelmine Luise.  When George was only seven his father died.  He and his mother then lived alternately in Berlin and Stolp, Pomerania (now Poland), where Georg started secondary school in 1902.  In 1908 he was expelled from school for disobedience (allegedly for returning a blow he had received from a trainee teacher).
