MAX SLEVOGT (German / 1868-1932)

Max Slevogt is regarded as one of the most important figures in German Impressionism, alongside Lovis Corinth and Max Liebermann. Slevogt was born in Landshut in 1868. He attended the Munich Academy from 1885-1889, studying under Wilhelm Diez, and then spent time at the Académie Julian in Paris. Max Slevogt did not adopt his mature Impressionist style until after 1900, when the paintings of Manet at the Exposition Universelle in Paris came as a revelation. The following year, Max Slevogt joined the Berlin Secession. During WWI Max Slevogt was an official War Artist. He died at Leinsweiler in 1932.
