Corinth, Lovis, German painter and printmaker (1858-1925). Autograph signature.

Berlin, [postmark: 5 April 1909].

Oblong 8vo (postcard). 1 page.


Inscribed to the German dermatologist Alwin Scharlau.

Studying in Paris and Munich, Corinth joined the Berlin Secession in 1892, later succeeding Max Liebermann as the group's president, and realized a synthesis of Impressionism and Expressionism in his work, his style taking on expressionistic qualities after he suffered a stroke in 1911.

Small ink stain on verso showing through near lower right corner; some small ink spots. Self-addressed by the collector on the reverse. The Mecklenburg physician Scharlau (b. 1888) assembled a collection of artists' autographs by personal application.
