        Painter


      • Max Beckmann was a German painter, lithographer and woodcut artist and one of the greatest 20th-century figure painters. In World War I he served in a medical corps but was released following a nervous breakdown. A teacher at Frankfurt school of art (1915-33) he was dismissed by the Nazi regime and settled in Amsterdam in 1937 moving to the U.S.A. in 1947. He is identifiable with no one school but his army experiences radically affected him and his work passed through a period of Expressionistic distortion and New Objectivity realism, using scenes from everyday life for subjects. Beckmann left a large series of self-portraits.
