"Above all lands this beauty patch smiles at me. (ille terrarum mihi praeter omnes angulus ridet.)" - In 1921 Liebermann used these words from the 6th ode of Horace to describe his beloved summer house on Wannsee. Remote from the bustling city it offered him a perfect retreat in nature. (Cf. J. E. Howoldt, in: Im Garten von Max Liebermann, Bonn/Berlin 2004, p. 11)
