Max Liebermann - 1876

Max Liebermann put a lot of effort into this painting. It was a long and tedious process just to obtain permission to work in the courtyard of the Amsterdam orphanage. He spent weeks on site making studies, then developed them further in his studio, and later returned to Holland before finally embarking on the actual painting in Munich in the autumn of 1881. It had meanwhile been five years since he had first conceived the plan
a year later the work was finished. It shows Liebermann as a painter who had absorbed the influence of both the Naturalists and the Impressionists he knew from Paris. The motif reflects his penchant for social realism
at the same time, however, he bathes reality in an atmosphere of peace and harmony. The girls have a home here, they are properly dressed, no one harasses them, they play and busy themselves.
The painting thus also solicits social empathy and visions of social reform. In reality, the location was not as picturesque
to an extent, the scene was artfully composed by the painter. The entrance at the back, for instance, was actually further to the left. Even more significantly, there were no trees in this courtyard filtering the sunlight to form the “Liebermannesque sun spots” on the ground, walls and figures.

Max Liebermann (July 20, 1847 – February 8, 1935) was a German-Jewish painter and printmaker, and one of the leading proponents of Impressionism in Germany.

The son of a Jewish businessman from Berlin, Liebermann first studied law and philosophy at the University of Berlin, but later studied painting and drawing in Weimar in 1869, in Paris in 1872, and in the Netherlands in 1876–77. During the Franco-Prussian War (1870–71), Liebermann served as a medic with the Order of St. John near Metz. After living and working for some time in Munich, he finally returned to Berlin in 1884, where he remained for the rest of his life. He was married in 1884 to Martha Marckwald (1857–1943, see portrait by Anders Zorn).

He used his own inherited wealth to assemble an impressive collection of French Impressionist works. He later chose scenes of the bourgeoisie, as well as aspects of his garden near Lake Wannsee, as motifs for his paintings. In Berlin, he became a famous painter of portraits; his work is especially close in spirit to Édouard Manet.

From 1899 to 1911 he led the premier avant-garde formation in Germany, the Berlin Secession. Beginning in 1920 he was president of the Prussian Academy of Arts. In 1933 he resigned when the academy decided to no longer exhibit works by Jewish artists. While watching the Nazis celebrate their victory by marching through the Brandenburg Gate, Liebermann was reported to have commented: "Ick kann jar nich soville fressen, wie ick kotzen möchte." ("I cannot eat as much as I would like to puke").

Together with Lovis Corinth and Max Slevogt, Liebermann became an exponent of German Impressionism.

On April 30, 2006, the Max Liebermann Society opened a permanent museum in the Liebermann family's villa in the Wannsee district of Berlin. The artist's wife, Martha Liebermann, was forced to sell the villa in 1940. On March 5, 1943, at the age of 85 and bedridden from a stroke, she was notified to get ready for deportation to Theresienstadt concentration camp. Instead, she committed suicide in the family home, Haus Liebermann, hours before police arrived to take her away. There is a stolperstein for her in front of their former home by the Brandenburg Gate in Berlin.
