The Painters of Modern Life
The first time I saw the painting The Flax Weavers by the Berlin impressionist Max Liebermann, in the Alte Nationale Galerie in Berlin, I had the strange feeling that, somehow, I was already familiar with it; that in a sense, I had seen it before. The Flax Weavers was painted in 1887 and depicts a group of women in a wooden workshop space weaving together long plats of flax, a plant that was an indispensable component of rope and canvas making during the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries.fatcat:3477hge4dbgwjl7gamkuwzpyqq
