In 1909 the artist Max Liebermann instructed his architect Paul Otto Baumgarten to build him a summer house on the banks of Berlin’s Lake Wannsee. The resulting villa provided a summer retreat for the Liebermann family up until the death of the artist in 1935. The garden at Wannsee – designed by the artist together with the Hamburg museum director Alfred Lichtwark – was an expression of the emerging “reform garden” movement, with its straight pathways, neat divisions and structural use of hedging. The garden was also an important source of inspiration for the artist, who completed over 200 oil paintings exploring its many facets.
For reasons of her Judaism, Liebermann’s widow was forced to sell the villa in 1940. It was turned into a training centre for the Third Reich’s postal service. After the Second World War the villa was used as a hospital, and later – from 1972 to 2002 – as a diving club. Thanks to the work of the Max Liebermann Society, it finally became possible to reconstruct both the garden and the house, which opened as a museum in 2006. Today the villa contains a permanent exhibition of Liebermann’s paintings and drawings, which focuses on the works he created at Wannsee. With a walk through the fully-reconstructed garden, visitors can enjoy for themselves the scenery so inspirational to the artist. The villa also hosts regular special exhibitions dedicated to Liebermann and his contemporaries, and contains a documentary exhibition exploring the history of the Liebermann family.
