News from the Liebermann-Villa
Between 1905 and 1913, Max Liebermann spent every summer in the idyllic fishing village of Noordwijk on the Dutch North Sea coast – with just one exception, 1910, the first summer in his newly built villa on lake Wannsee. Noordwijk quickly became one of his favorite places and a major source of inspiration. For the artist’s 175th birthday, we’re bringing the coast to lake Wannsee, presenting about thirty Noordwijk pictures from private collections. As his last Holland works, these mark a pivotal moment in Liebermann’s career and demonstrate his unwavering belief in the ideas of Impressionism.
Around 1900, a trend for country houses became noticeable among Berlin’s upper middle classes. In July 1909, the painter Max Liebermann (1847-1935) acquired one of the last waterfront properties in the Alsen villa colony on Lake Wannsee – two plots of land at Große Seestraße 24 (today Colomierstraße 3). There he created a summer retreat for his family away from their main residence in the heart of Berlin.Jetzt vorbestellen
