Portrait of Family Lutjens - By Max Beckmann, 1944

"A harmonically measured rhythm is established by the expressive play of hands and full, sonorous colors. During that last desperate winter of the war, when this portrait was painted, Lutjens bought a good many paintings, stored the largest works, such as Blindman's Buff, and finally invited the Beckmanns to stay with him in his house." --Peter Selz, Max Beckmann
