Max Beckmann⁣ Quappi in Pink Jumper⁣ 1934⁣ “Beckmann’s incisive personal style softened perceptibly from the mid-1920s, when he met and married his second wife, Matilde von Kaulbach, better known as Quappi. The thick black outlines, earlier used to convey his bitter condemnation of contemporary society, thenceforth served to define the facial features of his attractive young wife. Beckmann’s swift brushstrokes turn Quappi—portrayed here on a blue armchair, fashionably dressed and holding a cigarette—into a prototype of the modern woman; resolute and self-confident. The portrait was started in 1932 and finished in 1934, by which time Beckmann had changed the date and also toned down Quappi’s smile to reflect the couple’s concern at the rise of the Nazis to power.”⁣ #paintings #painting #artlovers #artists #famousart #artlegends #art #thearts #everythingart #arteverything #artislife #artislife e🎨 #dailyart #fineart #artoftheday #artstagram #artofinstagram #arthistorian #arthistorynerd #arthistory #historyofart #artlove #maxbeckmann #beckmann #quappiinpinkjumper #modernart #20thcenturyart
