    • Like Max Liebermann, who he succeeded as president of the Berlin Secession group, Lovis Corinth was one of the leading German Impressionists.

      He worked in Paris 1884 - 7 and painted in an Impressionist style until 1911, when he was crippled by a stroke. He forced his hand to work, and from then on painted in a more violent and pessimistic way: some of his later works are crude and harshly Expressionist.

      There is a museum in his birthplace in Tapiau, East Prussia, and he is well represented in German museums; other works are in Basle, Belgrade, London (Tate), New York (M of MA), Vienna and Zurich.

      • In 1880 he attended the Munich Academy.

      • Joined the Free Association in 1894.

      • Married to Charlotte Berend.

      • Produced more than 900 graphic works.
