Remember Max Liebermann
Max Liebermann found his own interpretation of impressionism in the middle of the 1890’s. He left his home country in 1873 and settled for a while in Montmartre, hoping to mingle among the realist and impressionist painters. But being a German, he wasn’t accepted by the artist community (the Franco Prussian War had only just ended two year before). 

He died in Berlin at the age of 89 on 8 February 1936.
