• Corinth, well-known for his sensuous and physical painting, attained a fascinating free, airy and coloristic form and an expressive pose.
• At the peak o fhis success, Corinth was elected president of the Berliner Secession in 1911, in 1913 Paul Cassirer organized a comprehensive Corinth retrospective exhibition.
