The exhibition comprising around 120 paintings presents a selection of Liebermann’s works alongside those by a number of colleagues from different European art hubs. The selection of works demonstrates the lively exchange between artists in this era and their mutual influence across national boundaries, as well as the extent to which Liebermann’s success was linked with his exploration of art from other countries. In this respect, Düsseldorf also played an important part.
Alongside major works by Liebermann the presentation includes works by the artist’s French and Dutch guiding figures and contemporaries such as Vincent van Gogh, Jean-François Millet, Claude Monet, Frans Hals and Rembrandt van Rijn. A separate room is dedicated to Liebermann’s strong influence on the Düsseldorf art scene.
Curator of the exhibition is Martin Faass, Director of the Hessisches Landesmuseum Darmstadt, alongside co-curator Maria Zinser, Kunstpalast Düsseldorf.
The show is a collaboration between Hessisches Landesmuseum Darmstadt and the Kunstpalast, Düsseldorf.
The exhibition is supported by Kulturstiftung der Länder.
