After the end of the First World War and at the age of 61, Lovis Corinth returned to his house at Lake Walchen, near Berlin, which his wife Charlotte Berend had had built for him. This was the start of a very successful period, in which he painted mostly landscapes, portraits and still lifes. The heavy stroke which he suffered in 1911, and which left him paralysed on the left of his body and with a trembling right hand, had a positive effect on his subsequent work. For during his convalescence, Corinth began to explore new styles, such as Expressionism, and gradually developed a new way of painting. He abandoned the highly dominant history painting of old, and developed a new interest in the painting of portraits and objects. Alongside the many self-portraits, reflections of an artist suffering increasingly from depression, he also turned to landscape. The paintings, which mostly show the area around his house at Lake Walchen, already, in terms of colour and form, show signs of expressiveness. Such is the case also with his still lifes of flowers, of which Corinth produced numerous outstanding compositions in the 1920s – in his late period.
