Max Liebermann

1847 - 1935

Born in Berlin, Liebermann studied under Eduard Holbein and Karl Steffeck from 1863 to 1869, and at the Weimar School of Art from 1869 to 1872. From 1873 to 1878 he lived mainly in Paris but visited Holland and the village of Barbizon, where he was influenced by Jean-Fran├žois Millet. In 1878 he moved to Munich, and in 1884 returned to Berlin, where he was one of the founder members of the Berlin Secession in 1898. In the late 1890s his work was influenced by French Impressionism.
