Lovis CorinthLovis Corinth, In the Studio, 1919, drypoint. Gift of James and Pamela Elesh, 1999.21.

Lovis Corinth’s work manifests a nervous energy that reflects the volatile times in which he lived as well as his own anxieties and physical struggles. Yet in contrast to his contemporaries who directly addressed the trauma of war or of urban chaos, Corinth increasingly turned to traditional subject matter. This exhibition highlights graphic works Corinth created in the final years of his life, from self-portraiture to biblical, mythological, and historical themes.
