The leading artist in Germany from the early 1890s until the Nazi takeover in 1933, Max Liebermann (1847-1935), earned the moniker "Manet of the Germans."
This first English-language monolith on Liebermann explores the details of his life and work and his artistic virtuosity. Essays contributed by German and American scholars provide creative new ways of understanding and interpreting Liebermann and the times in which he lived.
Edited by Barbara C. Gilbert, senior curator of fine arts at the Skirball Cultural Center, Los Angeles, this catalogue accompanied Skirball’s 2005 retrospective Max Liebermann: From Realism to Impressionism.
