Max Beckmann (1884 - 1950) was a German painter, draftsman, printmaker, sculptor, and writer. Although he is classified as an Expressionist artist, he rejected both the term and the movement. In the 1920s, he was associated with the New Objectivity (Neue Sachlichkeit), an outgrowth of Expressionism that opposed its introverted emotionalism. He is known for the self-portraits painted throughout his life, their number and intensity rivaled only by those of Rembrandt and Picasso. - wiki.
