Max Liebermann

1847-1935 Germany/Impressionism

 

Brief Biography-Max Liebermann was the son of a Jewish banker in Berlin. In 1868, he began his art studies in Weimar, after first studying Law in Berlin. He spent time studying in Paris and Holland between 1869 and 1877. He served with the Order of Saint John during war time before settling back in Berlin in 1884. He mainly painted portraits and received numerous commissions from notable clientele. He worked in the impressionist style, close to that of Manet, and was elected to the Prussian Academy of Arts in 1897. He became the first president of the ‘The Berlin Secession’ group a year later. In 1920, he was president of the Prussian Academy of arts, until 1933, when the work of Jewish artists was prohibited by the Nazi regime. Several of his works were inspired by his garden at Wannsee. He died in the Pariser Platz in 1935. One of his many close associates in the Secession was Lovis Corinth.
