Otto Dix 'Skat Cards'  1920

Hi ....I collect items portrayed in famous works of Art

In 1920 Otto Dix completed a painting entitled "Card Playing War Cripples" which is at the Neue Nationalgalerie in Berlin. As you can see from the picture they match 'Attenburger Stutkarte Nr 148'. Both the packets I have found are from after WW2. What I can't seem to find is cards dating or pre dating the painting. I think they might have been originally produced by Stralsund ? but that's a real shot in the dark.

Hopefully there is someone out there with more info on what I should be looking for.

Thanks Michael

Hi, if you care about the production year, then you should also pay attention that there are two Kings of acorns on the painting.
