My Berlin infatuation continues. Last weekend I went to Max Liebermann’s villa on the Wannsee. It is a spectacular setting.

The lake is just a few kilometers from the centre of Berlin, but it feels like you are in the country.
His art is equally memorable. Max Liebermann’s life and the Wannsee itself provide a poignant illustration of the highs and lows of German culture and politics. I’m not an art expert, but there is something rather special about this painting.
It makes me want to go and find a bench to sit on, and read about the Berlin Succession.
You can buy books and prints etc in the on-line shop, and the museum is a must see.
