1937 Munich House of German Art Karl Truppe “Being and Passing Away"
Lot 1711
The critic Karl Korn lost his wartime job on Das Reich for adversely commenting on Truppe’s painting Being and Passing Away, which Hitler gave as a wedding gift to Bavarian Gauleiter Wagner. By juxtaposing a nude maiden and a fully dressed old crone, Truppe had hit on a variation of the skull-beneath-the head theme, profitably combining eroticism and mock insight.
