A new exhibition in the Contexts of the Permanent Collection series which focuses on the relationship between Otto Dix -one of the great 20 th century German painters- and his friend Hugo Erfuth, a celebrated portrait photographer. The exhibition brings together works by the two men, revealing how their influence on each other extended beyond their close personal friendship. In addition, it analyses Dix´s unique technique through the presentation of recent research undertaken by the Museum´s Restoration Department on the painting Hugo Erfuth with his Dog from the Permanent Collection. The painting forms the centrepiece of the exhibition.
