This is the only museum in the world where you can simply look out the window to see the live models shown in the pictures inside.
A total of 40 paintings and pastels are exhibited here in Max Liebermann’s summer lakeside residence, whereas his garden has remained unchanged and still looks just like it did from 1904 until the artist’s death in 1935.
During this period, Liebermann created more than 200 pictures. His garden inspired the artist with its floral splendor and glimmering light, and it helps you to understand his personal kind of impressionism. Liebermann was so famous and reputable during Wilhelm II’s empire and the golden twenties that he could afford to reside in a palace by the Brandenburg Gate (today the Landesbank Berlin Holding). However, the Nazi demagogues confiscated all of Martha and Max Liebermann’s properties because they were Jews.
Berlin cannot recompense these crimes, but this venue shows the city’s fondness and affection for the Liebermanns and other Jewish Berliners.
