1895 Leipzig, Germany

Max Schwimmer was born in Leipzig in 1895. He is a painter, graphic artist and illustrator. Artistically largely self-taught, Schwimmer first studied at the Leipzig-Connewitz Teacher Training College and was temporarily employed as a schoolteacher in Obersaida and Marienberg in the Ore Mountains, as well as in Lützschena near Leipzig.

After returning from the war, he began studying art history and philosophy at Leipzig University in 1919. This period saw the beginnings of his artistic activity. He also joined the anti-bourgeois cabaret scene, which was dominated by Hans Reimann, Erich Weinert, Slang and Ringelnatz. He worked for the satirical magazines Die Aktion and Der Drache. With the help of Johannes R. Becher, Schwimmer succeeded in establishing himself in the left-wing art scene.

As an expressive realist, Max Schwimmer is one of the most important painters in Saxony from the
last century. He was a member of the Academy of Arts in Berlin from 1952.
