I would also say not. With the possible exception of this one from the Gurlitt stash(right):

which puts me in mind of AC's oval portrait of Leah - the one where he has her looking a bit like Kieth Richards

OK

some more comparisons..............

Crowley

Dix

but do your own research see what you think.  I think Dix was amazing he underwent major trauma on the front during the Great War.... as did everyone I'm sure.

I have thought that Rabindranath Tagore, who took up painting at age 63, about 1922, without any training, like Crowley, most resembles Crowley's portraits.

E.g.

His paintings reflect visions and dreams as well.

See all over the web, for instance -

you may find it interesting that Nierendorf - who put on AC's Berlin exhibition in Oktober of 31, was also Dix' gallerist.  The two were so close that he was often referred to as Nierendix.

Well Crowley's art would've blended in with any of the Weimar period Grotesque/surrealist style.

Dix famously did a self-portrait with himself portrayed as the god Mars which is fitting in terms of the zeitgeist.  Like I said he served in the Great War and did a lot of gruesome paintings exorcising his traumas it would seem.
