Dodo (that is D. C. Wolff), Wedding auf dem Dachgarten. 1929. Gouache. 18.3 x 25.1 in. EUR 40.000-60.000

Munich, 3 November, 2012, (kk) – Very soon the question will be: Who doesn't know Dodo? She's from Berlin, her œuvre has to be mentioned in one breath with works by Otto Dix, Tamara de Lempicka, Jeanne Mammen and Christian Schad. So far she hasn't appeared on the art market, but that's going to change on 8 December:

“We are very proud of celebrating a world premiere with “Wedding auf dem Dachgarten“ and to offer a work by such an exciting artist in our 400th auction“, said Robert Ketterer.

Dodo's verist pictorial language is all in line with New Objectivity. A student of Georg Tappert, she did not only make illustrations for renowned magazines such as Vogue, she also made social-critical contributions on the covers of the satirical magazine “ULK“. Even though her works can be well considered emblems of the spirit of her time, she is far more than just a chronicler. She developed a unique style that enabled her to decrypt the glamor of the 1920s, holding a mirror to society and to eventually expose its artificiality. Dodo's artistic focus on the depiction of women makes additional contribution: By means of extravagant hats, modern hairstyles, affected gestures and lurid make-up, she renders the new type of woman – self confident and emancipated.

The 1929 scene “Wedding auf dem Dachgarten“, was released as double sheet in “ULK“ and was reason for the artist's rediscovery, as it delivers striking proof of her overall high and sophisticated standard: On the one hand she displays luxury and pleasure, on the other hand she allows a glimpse behind the facade, where there is intrigue and an inner void. Besides the conciseness of content ,it is especially her artistic brilliance that convinces the observer.

The State Museums in Berlin also acknowledged her high quality standards, dedicating the exhibition “Dodo (1907-1988) - Ein Leben in Bildern (A Life in Pictures)“ to the impressive work by this fascinating personality in spring 2012.

”Wedding auf dem Dachgarten“ (estimate: EUR 40.000-60.000) is embedded in the high quality range of offerings in the anniversary auction of Modern Art and Post War /Contemporary Art at Ketterer Kunst. On occasion of the 400th auction, works by renowned artists such as Heinrich Campendonk, Alexej von Jawlensky, Max Pechstein, Roy Lichtenstein, Max Liebermann, Gabriele Münter, Franz Radziwill, Gerhard Richter, Egon Schiele, Günther Uecker, Zao Wou-Ki and Emilio Vedova will be called up (see separate press release).
