MAX LIEBERMANN: MODERN ART AND MODERN GERMANY. Marion F. Deshmukh. Ashgate Publishing, Farnham/Burlington, 2015. 476 pp. with 168 ills. (24 col.). 25 x 18 cm. LC 2015-20625 ISBN 9781472434159 In English.
Publisher's description: 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.
