Lovis Corinth

378 Discovered works of art  •  ID: #1099
Impressionism   •   Lovis Corinth @ Wikipedia

On 21 July 1858 Lovis Corinth was born in Tapiau in East Prussia. His father was a farmer and later a councilor in Tapiau. Lovis spent his childhood in agriculture, in stables, and near the mines of his father's tannery. Already at that time he produced papercuts as well as pencil and pen drawings.

In 1876 Corinth finally began his studies at the Art Academy in Königsberg. At the turn of the century, he painted mainly pictures with literary-historical content, "Salome with the head of John" (1899) and the "Crucifixion of Christ" (1909). From 1904, the nude studies of Corinth increased, but he rarely had professional models, but he asked his friends, his wife or closer relatives, to model him. His will to grasp the body, the blood and the flesh is shown both in his 14 slaughterhouse scenes, in which his great role model Rembrandt becomes recognizable, as well as in his nudes like "Girlfriends" and "Lying Female Nude". In general, Corinth's style shows no strictly chronological development.

The painting "Am Putzisch" is one of his best-known works. Corinth was not only concerned with painting, he also worked in the literary field: in 1920 appeared his collected writings, his autobiography followed a year after his death. In June, Lovis Corinth traveled to Amsterdam and died on 17 July during his stay in Zandvoort in the Netherlands. © Meisterdrucke
