Lovis Corinth

German painter and printmaker

Brief biography, in most instances from the Union List of Artist Names® Online:
Corinth was born in what was formerly Tapiau, East Prussia (now Gvardeysk, Russia). Corinth was a prolific artist with a varied style; he was one of the leading representatives of German Impressionism. His later work, after an apoplectic stroke in 1911, was in a loose and powerful Expressionist style. After his death, these later works were deemed 'degenerate' by the Nazis.
