The Kimbell Art Museum has acquired the Portrait of the Art Dealer Heinrich Thannhauser, 1918, a painting by one of the most important modern German painters, Lovis Corinth, the museum announced Dec. 20. The painting is on display in the Louis I. Kahn Building. Admission is free.

The announcement described Corinth as a leading figure painter whose career spanned the 19th and 20th centuries and is famous for his masterful draftsmanship and vigorous brushwork.

“The portrait of Thannhauser commands attention in the galleries among seminal works of modernism,” Eric M. Lee, director of the Kimbell Art Museum, said in a news release. “The Kimbell owns very few works by German artists, and this painting by Corinth represents a significant addition, bringing representation, through one of its major proponents, to a culture that was vital in the years around World War I.”

The painting remained with the family of family until 2016 and was acquired by the Kimbell Art Museum through Galerie Arnoldi-Livie, Munich.

“Among Lovis Corinth’s masterworks in public collections, the Portrait of the Art Dealer Heinrich Thannhauser stands out for its almost heroic presentation of a figure who seems both approachable and vibrantly present in real time. It’s not a surprise to learn that Corinth painted the likeness in half a day,” said George T.M. Shackelford, Kimbell deputy director.

The painting remained with the family of Thannhauser until 2016 and was acquired by the Kimbell Art Museum through Galerie Arnoldi-Livie, Munich.
