With thanks to Wikipedia for the following: Corinth was a German artist and writer whose mature work as a painter and printmaker realized a synthesis of impressionism and expressionism. Corinth studied in Paris and Munich, joined the Berlin Secession group, later succeeding Max Liebermann as the group's president. His early work was naturalistic in approach. Corinth was initially antagonistic towards the expressionist movement, but after a stroke in 1911 his style loosened and took on many expressionistic qualities. His use of color became more vibrant, and he created portraits and landscapes of extraordinary vitality and power. Corinth's subject matter also included nudes and biblical scenes. During the Third Reich, Corinth's work was condemned by the Nazis as degenerate art. In 1937, Nazi authorities removed 295 of his works from public collections, and transported seven of them to Munich where they were displayed in March 1937 in the Degenerate Art Exhibition. Eigentlich Franz Heinrich Louis Corinth war ein deutscher Maler. Er zählt neben Max Liebermann, Ernst Oppler und Max Slevogt zu den wichtigsten und einflussreichsten Vertretern des deutschen Impressionismus. Seine späten Werke werden häufig als eine Synthese aus impressionistischem und expressionistischem Schaffen angesehen.
