About the Artist

Born in Halle, Germany, Max Koehne (1880-1968) was a colorist who created
cheerful landscapes that appear to be painted spontaneously and with
freshness. By 1912 he was producing work that would make him known as a
“colourist of great distinction” by producing “paintings full of sparkling
sunlight.” His work was widely exhibited including the National Academy of
Design, the Art Institute of Chicago, and the Carnegie Institute in
Pittsburgh.
