Biographical/Historical Information

Possibly one of Liebermann's Dutch scenes, according to Dr. Eberle, compiler of the Berlin National Gallery 1979 catalogue.

Max Liebermann (1847-1935) was born in Berlin and trained in Weimar before continuing to study in Amsterdam and Paris, where he was influenced by Courbet, Millet, and the Barbizon School. Liebermann returned to Germany in 1878 and continued painting in the Impressionist style, founding the movement in his native country. In 1899, he helped found the Berlin Secession. He was a very influential figure in German art and was the dominant figure until the emergence of avant-garde art. He was the president of the Prussian Academy of Arts but resigned in 1933 because he was forbidden to paint as a Jew.
