Max Beckmann. The Classen Collection
Augustinermuseum - Haus der Graphischen Sammlung
by Museum für Neue Kunst
Max Beckmann (1884-1950) is regarded as one of the most important German artists of the 20th century. Acclaimed for his expressive, often mythologized painting, he was also a gifted illustrator and graphic artist. The most productive print phases in Beckmann's work were the war years and the early 1920s, when he lived in Frankfurt am Main. From this time, the exhibition shows some 50 works from the private collection of Christa and Dr Wolfgang Classen.
