A leading figure of the Berlin Secession, Lovis Corinth worked as a painter, printmaker, and draftsman, bridging the stylistic gap between impressionism and German expressionism with naturalism as a common thread. Best known for his portraits and landscape paintings, Corinth favored themes of love, sexuality, and death. While Corinth sought to capture the body’s fleshy nature and exaggerated gestures in his portraits, his landscapes are more traditional and emphasize overall compositional balance.

Corinth’s self-portraits, created as a means of stylistic and allegorical exploration, also grew more cerebral in his later years.
