Heinrich Tramm was an official of the city of Hanover. There are two oil portraits of him by Max Liebermann: one is in the Hanover Museum of Art; the other one is in the collection of Dr. Tramm's grandson in Hanover.
Max Liebermann (1847-1935). Born in Berlin. Max Liebermann 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 because he was Jewish.
