Along with Max Liebermann, Lesser Ury and Max Slevogt, Lovis Corinth was one of the most important and influential representatives of German Impressionism. He was a member of the Munich Secession and was later elected chairman of the Berlin Secession. His style of painting was always marked by vigorous brushwork and bold impasto. His mature works, based purely on colour, were often regarded as a synthesis of Impressionism and Expressionism.
