LOVIS CORINTH (German / 1858-1925)

Lovis Corinth was born Franz Heinrich Louis Corinth in Tapiau, Prussia, in 1858. He studied at the Königsburg Academy and then at the Munich Academy, before continuing his studies in Antwerp and in Paris in the studio of William Bouguereau at the Académie Julian. Lovis Corinth was a founder of the Munich Secession, and also exhibited with the Berlin Secession. In 1902 Corinth founded an art school for women, subsequently marrying his very first student, Charlotte Berend. In 1911 Lovis Corinth suffered a stroke, but recovered enough to continue creating art until his death. The art of Lovis Corinth is regarded as a synthesis of Impressionism and Expressionism.
