About the Work

Shopping is women's business. At the market in the Jewish Quarter of Amsterdam, a detail of which Liebermann shows here, an exclusively female clientele is bustling in front of the barrow piled high with vegetables. The delicacies on sale are more pastose colour than actual items, just as the crowds of people passing by in the background dissolve into dabs of colour and lines. Liebermann's highly individual form of Impressionism transforms the ordinary everyday scene into a shimmering event full of movement - one that he also recorded in numerous other Amsterdam street scenes.
