~  Max Beckmann - The Early Years ~

           Beckmann transitioned from Impressionism to Post-Expressionism after World War I. His affinity to Henri Rousseau in the early 1920s is apparent. These paintings are prototypical works of Magic Realism. After 1925 Beckmann developed a highly individual style, informed by Cezanne, Grünewald, Brueghel and study of the medieval stained glass.
