Before Thanksgiving we were able to visit German painter Max Beckmann exhibition at the Met.
It is covering his time in St. Louise and New York City before his death in 1950. He suffered a fatal heart attack on his way from his apartment on the West side to exhibition of his Selfportrait in Blue Jacket at the Met. His bold brush strokes covey so much meaning. You can feel his vitality and love of life. He painted over 60 self portraits and there were 7 or 8 hanging. The portraits of his second wife, Quappa, were lovingly done.
The exhibition is on untill February 20, 2017

One thought on “Death of Max Beckmann.”
What a lovely and thoughtfully arranged exhibition thank you for sharing with us! Beckmann was an incredibly talented, multi-faceted painter and it is great to see that the Met decided to do a Beckmann retrospective to honor his work and highlight his strong connection to New York City. Thank you for sharing!
