    German Impressionist Landscape Painting, Liebermann — Corinth — Slevogt

    The Museum of Fine Arts, Houston (MFAH) presents the exhibition German Impressionist Landscape Painting, Liebermann — Corinth — Slevogt, On view Sunday, September 12 - Sunday, December 5, 2010 at the Audrey Jones Beck Building. 

    Impressionism is considered a fundamentally French artistic movement, but the international reputation of Paris as the world´s leading art center inevitably led to the dissemination of this style to other countries. Art students from all over Europe flocked to Paris to be trained at the Académie des Beaux-Arts or one of the many private studios. Despite the strained political relationship between Germany and France at the time, German interest in French artistic developments was particularly lively.

    German Impressionist Landscape Painting features more than 90 paintings by the remarkable artists Max Liebermann, Lovis Corinth, and Max Slevogt. Liebermann (1847—1935), who has been called "the German Manet," lived in Paris from 1873 to 1878 and subsequently became the leader of a generation of German painters, including Corinth (1858—1925) and Slevogt (1868—1932), who were inspired by the works of their colleagues based in France, such as Cézanne, Degas, van Gogh, Manet, Monet, and Renoir.

    Liebermann, Corinth, and Slevogt were celebrated as the "triumvirate of German Impressionism." Although none of the three was exclusively a landscape artist, their landscapes present an opportunity to trace the development of a particular kind of German Impressionism through works of the highest quality.

    Organized by the MFAH and the Wallraf-Richartz-Museum in Cologne, Germany, German Impressionist Landscape Painting is the first major exhibition in the United States devoted to this subject in 30 years. Helga Kessler Aurisch, MFAH associate curator of European art, coordinates the Houston presentation.
