52 Max Beckmann Paintings

Max Beckmann

Max Beckmann was a German painter, printmaker, and writer known for his powerful and expressive style. Born in 1884 in Leipzig, Beckmann studied at the Weimar Academy of Fine Arts and later taught at the St├Ądelschule in Frankfurt. He gained recognition for his bold use of color and distortion of form, often depicting scenes of urban life, political turmoil, and human suffering. Beckmann's work was labeled as "degenerate" by the Nazis, and he was forced to flee Germany during World War II. He spent his later years in the United States, where he continued to create striking and thought-provoking art until his death in 1950. Beckmann's work is now highly regarded for its emotional intensity and vivid storytelling.
