"Great Scene of Agony"

Max Beckmann - Oil On Canvas - 141 x 131 cm - 1906

Great Scene of Agony is an 1906 oil on canvas painting by a German painter, printmaker, sculptor, and writer Max Beckmann, classified as an Expressionist artist. It was painted on expressionism style by use of genre painting on canvas. the artwork measures 141 by 131 centimeters and is now in a private collection.
In 1906, Beckmann painted Great Scene of Death to express and come to terms with his own grief at his mother's painful death. His brushwork is firm and solid with no light impressionist in this painting. The colors are reduced to a few dark, lusterless shades of brown and ocher. This serves to emphasize the whiteness of bed at the center of the painting.
The format of Beckmann's painting is almost square and it is dominated by dying woman on the bed. Weak and emaciated, with her mouth wide open and her eyes already closed, she is wrestling powerlessly with death. Beckmann has placed a group of three people, with different gestures and postures.
