    The present work is a portrait of the renowned German-Jewish businessman and art collector, Robert Neumann. Neumann lived and worked between Berlin and Königsberg where he owned and operated the successful department store Sommerfeld. Neumann gifted a painting by Max Liebermann to his son Max in 1926, in celebration of his marriage to Eva Ilsa Goldstaub. Following the death of Max in 1936, Eva and their daughter fled Nazi occupied Germany to Holland and later immigrated to the United States in 1938 where the descendants of Robert Neumann remain to this day.
