George Grosz was an artist best known for his savage caricatures of German life during the era of the Weimar Republic.

As the Nazi party began to rise to prominence in Germany, Grosz left with his family for the United States in 1933 and became a full citizen of the country five years later. However, after growing disillusioned with his 'new start' in America,  he returned to Germany in the late fifties. He died after accidentally falling down some stairs in 1959.
