Impressionismus in Leipzig 1900-1914
Liebermann, Slevogt, Corinth
Museum der Bildenden Künste Leipzig
The current exhibition »Impressionismus in Leipzig 1900–1914« at MdbK addresses the museum’s own history as well as the emergence of Leipzig as a modern metropolis at the beginning of the 20th century. The largely forgotten exhibitions of Max Liebermann, Max Slevogt and Lovis Corinth, staged at the museum by the Leipziger Kunstverein between 1904 and 1911, are reconstructed in three successive exhibitions and related to the museum’s purchases of paintings from that period. Part I is dedicated to Liebermann’s work.
