Max Liebermann was born in Berlin in 1847. He first studied law and philosophy, but later turned to painting and drawing. He studied and worked in Weimar in 1869, in Paris in 1872, and in the Netherlands from 1876 through 1877. After residing and working in Munich for some time, he returned to Berlin in 1884 and was active there for the rest of his life. Although he was himself a rather conservative artist, he helped to found the Sezession, an organization of progressive artists in Berlin in 1899. In 1920, he was elected president of the Preussische Akademie der Kuenste. He resigned in 1933, after he was forbidden to paint and the academy decided to no longer exhibit paintings by Jewish painters. He died in 1935.
