Unseen Max Beckmann Drawings, Prints Previewed at Berlin Exhibition

BERLIN – A Berlin museum previewed on Thursday a large collection of Max Beckmann prints, drawings and paintings, some of which were to be put on public display for the first time.

The Max Beckmann (1884-1950) exhibition – bequest of Barbara Göpel (1922-2017), art estate wife of Dr. Erhard Göpel who was involved in Nazi art-looting but paradoxically protected Beckmann from the Nazi regime– showcases 46 drawings, 52 graphic prints and two paintings.

“The Barbara Göpel Bequest represents a significant addition to the Berlin State Museum’s collection of classical modernist works, “ the museum said in a statement on its website.

“It makes possible a multifaceted insight into Max Beckmann’s (1884–1950) artistic oeuvre,” the organization added.

Beckmann’s aesthetic underwent an important shift following his experience as a medical volunteer during World War 1, which resulted in a distorted interpretation of the human form, a reflection of the trauma the war had on those who witnessed it evident in the 46 drawings exhibited.

He is particularly well known for his portraits and on show are “Self-Portrait in the Bar” (1942) and “Portrait of Erhard Göpel” (1944), both painted during his Amsterdam period in exile.

The exhibition showcases 52 graphic prints produced primarily between 1911 and 1929.

Many of the prints are done on Japanese washi paper, made from natural fibers, giving the paper an ethereal translucent finish.

Max Beckmann: The Barbara Göpel Bequest is set to show at the Berlin State Museum from Oct. 26 to Jan. 13
