Wikipedia entry
Lovis Corinth (21 July 1858 – 17 July 1925) was a German artist and writer whose mature work as a painter and printmaker realized a synthesis of impressionism and expressionism. Corinth studied in Paris and Munich, joined the Berlin Secession group, later succeeding Max Liebermann as the group's president. His early work was naturalistic in approach. Corinth was initially antagonistic towards the expressionist movement, but after a stroke in 1911 his style loosened and took on many expressionistic qualities. His use of color became more vibrant, and he created portraits and landscapes of extraordinary vitality and power. Corinth's subject matter also included nudes and biblical scenes.

He was born in what was formerly Tapiau, East Prussia (now Gvardeysk, Russia). Corinth was a prolific artist with a varied style; he was one of the leading representatives of German Impressionism. His later work, after an apoplectic stroke in 1911, was in a loose and powerful Expressionist style. After his death, these later works were deemed 'degenerate' by the Nazis.
