About the Work

For Max Liebermann, the Netherlands were an important source of inspiration. From 1885 onwards, he painted numerous scenes he had observed at the market in the Jewish neighbourhood of Amsterdam. This depiction shows the hustle and bustle at the intersection of Jodenbreestraat and Markensteeg. With his loose and sketch-like style of painting, Liebermann successfully and skilfully captures the occurrences and crowds with just a few brushstrokes. Later, this depiction would serve as a preliminary study for a large studio painting, which was much more detailed.
