The Painter Hans Theo Richter and His Wife Gisela, 1933

Otto Dix

Here’s a more normal (by Dix’s standards) portrait. Despite the unnatural poses and eerie expressions you get a very strong sense of affection in The Painter Hans Theo Richter and His Wife Gisela (1933). Gisela herself reminds me a lot of Edward Gorey’s drawings, particularly in her expression and attenuated, slightly distorted, figure. (http://johnguycollick.com/the-portraits-of-otto-dix/)
