In a recent post I mentioned a painting I once saw at Art Brussels of a man crying a river/waterfall.
The work gives new meaning to “Cry Me a River”.

Highlight in the history of the visual grotesque.

This reminds me of the body horror (or bio horror or horticultural horror) of the Krupp fountain in the courtyard of the Kunstgewerbehaus, Munich.

The book mentions Krieg dem Kriege (1924) by Ernst Friedrich.
It is from that book that “Die Badekur der Proleten. Fast das ganze Gesicht weggeschossen" (above) is taken.
Krieg dem Kriege is an incredible anti-war document.
