Max Jakob Friedländer was a German art historian and museum director, perhaps best known for the eleven-volume Die altniederländische Maleri. He studied in Munich, Florence, and Leipzig, and began a long association with the Gemäldegalerie der Staatlichen Museen, Berlin, in 1896. Widely respected as an author, collector, and curator, Friedländer preferred to consider himself a connoisseur; he added significantly to the Museum's collections, and published hundreds of books and articles, mainly on the art of Germany and the Netherlands. He emigrated to Amsterdam in 1939, where he concentrated on writing.
