Im Fokus. Martha, Käthe und Maria

In the organizer's words:

The women of the Liebermann family had a decisive influence on Max Liebermann's everyday life. "My ladies" is how he affectionately referred to them. His wife Martha, their daughter Käthe and granddaughter Maria are the focus of this exhibition. There was a great sense of family, so the Wannsee and the summer house were a private retreat. Max Liebermann could not deny his daughter Käthe any wish and his granddaughter Maria was spoiled when she visited her grandparents. In this exhibition, we follow in the footsteps of the three ladies, following clues from works of art, literature and previously undiscovered sources.
How did the artist portray the ladies of the family? And what fate befell them after the death of the head of the family after 1935?
