Admiral von Tirpitz

Date: 1917

Material/Technique: Oil/Canvas

Size: 102 x 77,5 cm


Lovis Corinth wanted to paint the former secretary of state of the Imperial Navy Department because he considered him to be one of "the greatest of the time". A few days previously, Germany had recommenced unlimited submarine warfare after a break of two years. From this point, war ships and trading vessels could be torpedoed without warning. This form of warfare had been broken off in 1915, because the destruction of the "Lusitania" had been responsible for the death of 1200 people. Despite this death toll, Tirpitz had continued to support the continuation of unlimited submarine warfare.
