This book focuses on a single painting from several points of view. Painted by Max Beckmann in 1944, the Portrait of the Lütjens Family became part of the Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen collection in 2009. Alongside personal recollections and documents, the book contains the results of the art-historical research into the background to the work and the technical research into the materials used. The various articles shed light on the place of the work in Beckmann's oeuvre, the historical context in which it was painted and the physical and technical aspects of the painting. The work bears witness to the special friendship between a painter and an art dealer, two Germans in the Netherlands in wartime.
