About the Work

Alongside Max Liebermann and Lovis Corinth, Max Slevogt is one of the most influential representatives of German Impressionism. The artist has used various shades of green and purple to create an atmospheric painting of the blossoming lilac in his garden in Neukastel. In the lower part of the picture, the filigree twigs of the bush and its delicate blossoms blend into the dark green thicket of the summer garden, while at the top they stand out clearly against the blue and white sky.
