Max Nonnenbruch | Genre/Portrait painter



A painter of striking seductiveness of style is Max Nonnenbruch, of Munich. After winning recognition by his earlier works of domestic genre, he devoted himself almost entirely to idyllic and semi-classical subjects, akin in feeling to "The Favorite", in which he found the true direction of his talent, and by which he is represented in the greatest private collections of Germany.
Nonnenbruch received his formal art training at the Academy in Dnsseldorf and Munich. In Paris, he studied at the l'Ecole de Beaux-Arts and completed his studies at the Academy Julian in Italy.
Nonnenbruch had his debute exhibition in 1888, where he won a bronze medal.
