Lovis Corinth

Lovis Corinth (born July 21, 1858, Tapiau, East Prussiadied July 12, 1925, Zandvoort, Neth.) German painter and graphic artist. He trained in Paris with the painter William Bouguereau. In 1902 he settled in Berlin and, with Max Liebermann, became a leading exponent of Impressionism in Germany. After recovering from a stroke in 1911, his style became much looser and more powerfully Expressionist. He was best known for his landscapes and portraits, including numerous powerfully expressive self-portraits, and he produced many etchings and lithographs (e.g., Apocalypse, 1921).
