About the Work

The drypoint etching alludes to Jsrael Ber Neumann’s emigration to America in 1923. It shows Beckmann conversing with his dedicated gallerist and the latter’s partner at the time, Martha Stern. Neumann opened his new gallery on 57th Street in Manhattan and began energetically promoting modern German art, and in particular the art of Max Beckmann. He not only advised Alfred H. Barr jr. during the founding phase of the Museum of Modern Art, but also various private collectors such as Rockefeller.
