One-room exhibition: Martha Liebermann

Fate of an artist's wife

Stiftung Brandenburger Tor – Max Liebermann Haus

In 1896, the Swedish Impressionist Anders Zorn painted a portrait of Martha Liebermann. This painting, together with its counterpart depicting Max Liebermann, was to become important in the ultimately futile efforts of the now widowed Martha to leave Nazi Germany. Martha took her own life in 1943 before the impending deportation.
