In 1952, Leon Harris, Jr., the young vice president of the Harris and Company department store commissioned expatriate German dadaist Grosz to create a series of paintings illustrating the landscape, economy, and society of Dallas for the store’s 65th anniversary celebrations. Twenty works from the series, accompanied by historic photographs of Dallas, document the city as Grosz discovered it.
