Max Beckmann

MAX BECKMANN IS THE GERMAN MODERNIST PAINTER WHOSE WORKS ARE MORE REQUESTED THAN EVER TODAY. AS FOR THE OTHER ARTISTS OF HIS GENERATION, THE FIRST WORLD WAR IS THE MAJOR CAESURA OF THE EPOCH. THE EXPERIENCE OF EXISTENTIAL SOLITUDE AND THE LOSS OF ALL TRADITIONAL CONVENTIONS TRANSFORMS HIM INTO A RADICAL AND UNYIELDING SEEKER OF TRUTH.
