Max Liebermann: Modern Art and Modern Germany is the first English-language examination of this German impressionist painter whose long life and career spanned nine decades. Through a close reading of key paintings and by a discussion of his many cultural networks across Germany and throughout Europe, this study by Marion Deshmukh illuminates Liebermann?s importance as a pioneer of German modernism. Critics and admirers alike saw his art as representing aesthetic European modernism at its best. His subjects included dispassionate depictions of the rural Dutch countryside, his colorful garden at the Wannsee, and his many portraits of Germany?s cultural, political, and military elites. Liebermann was the largest collector of French Impressionism in Germany - and his cosmopolitan outlook and his art created strong antipathies towards both by political and cultural conservatives throughout his life.

Although Max Liebermann (1847–1935) began his career as a realist painter depicting scenes of rural labor, Dutch village life, and the countryside, by the turn of the century, his paintings had evolved into colorful images of bourgeois life and leisure that critics associated with French impressionism. During a time of increasing German nationalism, his paintings and cultural politics sparked numerous aesthetic and political controversies. His eminent career and his reputation intersected with the dramatic and violent events of modern German history from the Empire to the Third Reich. The Nazis' persecution of modern and Jewish artists led to the obliteration of Liebermann from the narratives of modern art, but this volume contributes to the recent wave of scholarly literature that works to recover his role and his oeuvre from an international perspective.

Author: Max Liebermann
Max Liebermann (1847-1935), The leading artist in Germany from the early 1890s until the Nazi takeover in 1933, was known later in his career for his singular approach to Impressionism. Initially a realist painter, his work at times moved into the more abstract realm of "pure painting," which earned him the moniker, "Manet of the Germans." Liebermann, a self-assured cultural leader And The descendent of a successful German-Jewish family, was a celebrity in his own day. He was president of the Berlin Secession from 1898 until 1910 and, during the Weimar Republic served as president of the Prussian Academy of Art from 1920 until 1932. This first English-language publication on Liebermann looks beyond the factual details of his life and work to explore the virtuosity of his art And The personal attributes on which it oftentimes was based. Essays by German and American scholars provide creative new ways of understanding and interpreting Max Liebermann And The times in which he lived. Barbara C. Gilbert is senior curator of fine arts at the Skirball Cultural Center, Los Angeles. Other contributors include Marion Deshmukh, Francoise Forster-Hahn, Mason Klein, Chana Schultz, and Hermann Simon.

The great German-Jewish artist Max Liebermann was born in Berlin in 1847 and died there in 1935. His art studies began in the 1870s with Ferdinand Pauwels in Weimar. During the latter part of the 'seventies and through the 'eighties he made extensive trips to Holland and Paris. He was named Professor of the Königliche Akademie der Künste in 1898 and became the president of the Berlin Secession the following year. Beginning in 1912, the artist received numerous official decorations in Germany and Holland and was president of the Prussian Academy of Art from 1920 to 1932. Liebermann's earliest etchings date from the early 1890s and are reminiscent of Van Gogh's Nuenen period. After the turn of the century his style became more impressionistic and his subjects consisted of beach scenes, cafe views, equestrian images and street scenes in Holland, including a number of Jewish interest. In the teens he began his inimitable series of self-portraits and portraits of luminaries. During the First World War he created a series of lithographs in support of the German war effort. After the war he returned to his favorite motifs of horses, portraits, landscapes and children at play. The third edition of Schiefler's catalogue raisonné appeared in 1923 and has been unavailable for many years. This new fourth edition is undertaken with the authorization of the original publisher, Bruno Cassirer Ltd., who relocated to Oxford during the Nazi regime. This edition adds corrections and 94 new illustrations. It also provides an English language translation of the introduction, technical terms and titles.

In the new novel in the iconic Max Liebermann mystery series, master storyteller Frank Tallis delivers his latest suspenseful and spellbinding tale set in the smoky atmospheric world of fin de siecle Vienna. Vienna, 1904. The body of a man—still sitting in a chair—is discovered in an abandoned piano factory on the outskirts of the city. He has been shot dead but his face has been horribly disfigured with acid, making identification impossible. In front of the body are three chairs positioned conspicuously in a straight line. Who were the former occupants? Had they sat in judgement and pronounced a sentence of death? Detective Inspector Oskar Rheinhardt calls on his good friend Doctor Max Liebermann—psychiatrist and disciple of Sigmund Freud—to assist in an investigation that draws them both into the shadowy and sexually unconventional world of fringe political activism. It is a world populated by Bohemians, Utopian idealists, and anarchists, many of whom endorse acts of terror to achieve their revolutionary aims. When bomb-making equipment is found in a suburban basement, the sinister Imperial intelligence bureau (who have been secretly monitoring Rheinhardt’s investigation) make themselves known. A legendary anarchist known only by his code name—Mephistopheles—is abroad in Vienna. An appalling act of terror has been planned and time is running out. Rheinhardt must hope that Liebermann, with his profound knowledge of psychology and science, will be able to prevent the coming catastrophe. The latest novel in the iconic Max Liebermann mystery series, Mephisto Waltz is a tale of murder, romance, intrigue, and espionage set in the atmospheric world of fin de siecle Vienna.

Vienna, 1903. An operatic diva, Ida Rosenkrantz, is found dead in her luxurious villa. It appears that she has taken an overdose of morphine, but a broken rib, discovered during autopsy, suggests other and more sinister possibilities. Detective Inspector Oskar Rheinhardt seeks the assistance of his young friend, the psychoanalyst Dr Max Liebermann, and they begin their inquiries at Vienna's majestic opera house, where its director, Gustav Mahler, is struggling to maintain a pure artistic vision while threatened on all sides by pompous bureaucrats, vainglorious singers, and a hostile press. When the demagogue Mayor of Vienna, Karl Lueger, becomes the prime suspect - with an election only months away - the Rosenkrantz case becomes politically explosive. The trail leads Rheinhardt and Liebermann, via a social climbing professor of psychiatry, to the Hofburg palace and the mysterious Lord Marshal's office - a shadowy bureau that deals ruthlessly with enemies of the ageing Emperor Franz Josef. As the investigation proceeds, the investigators are placed in great personal danger, as corruption is exposed at the very highest levels. Meanwhile, Liebermann pursues two private obsessions: a coded message in a piece of piano music, and the alluring Englishwoman, Miss Amelia Lydgate. Romance and high drama collide as the Habsburg Empire teeters on the edge of scandal and ruin.

Max Liebermann was a German-Jewish painter and printmaker, one of the exponents of Impressionism in Germany. The realism and simplicity of his first exhibited paintings were in striking contrast to the Romantic, idealized art then in mode. After 1873 he became familiar with the Barbizon school of painters; as a result of their influence, he brightened his palette and helped initiate the German school of Impressionism. In the 1880s he found his subjects in the orphanages and asylums for the old in Amsterdam and among the peasants and urban labourers of Germany and the Netherlands. As a supporter of such academically unpopular styles as Impressionism and Art Nouveau, he founded the Berlin Sezession (1899). Liebermann dominated the German art world from the 1890s to the 1930s and led the modernist movement in Germany away from the literary art of the 19th century. His Naturalist and Impressionist works have been consistently admired, despite being banned during the Nazi period.

In the dynamic and dangerous Vienna of 1903, a brilliant psychoanalyst and a brave detective battle to catch criminals who commit the most clever and brutal crimes. Detective Inspector Oskar Reinhardt finds that young women are being slain in an unnerving—and ingenious—manner, with a small, almost undetectable, hat pin. For Dr. Max Liebermann, the killer is unique in the annals of psychopathology, one who murders in the midst of consensual love. Is the culprit a patient, one who swears he has a double, a shadow figure that is far more forward (in fact, indecent) with women? As danger mounts, Liebermann must find the answer while struggling with his own forbidden desire for a female patient.
