Lovis Corinth, whose real name is Franz Heinrich Louis Corinth, is one of the most important exponents of German Impressionism. His artistic education began at the Königsberg art academy under Professor Otto Günther. Corinth accompanied Otto Günther on several journeys. In 1880 he went to Munich, where he continued his studies under Franz von Defregger and later under Ludwig Löfftz. His works of that period were influenced by the naturalist paintings of the Munich “Leibl-Kreis.” After a short stay in Antwerp, Corinth moved to Paris.
