|Max Beckmann (1884-1950)
Max Beckmann was born in Leipzig and settled in Berlin in 1904.
His first solo show came in 1912.
Beckmann taught art in Frankfurt am Main from 1915, but was dismissed from his post by the Nazi Party in 1933.
His art was condemned as Entartete Kunst (degenerate art) by the Nazis in 1937.
Many of his works represent scenes from everyday life.
They often show grotesque, mutilated bodies, and are seen as commenting on the wrong-doings of the German government in the 1920s and 1930s.
Paris Society, 1931.
Oil on canvas, 43 x 69 1/8 inches. Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum
