Liebermann

In the early 1930s, despite the growing anti-Semitism in Germany, emissaries were sent to Max Liebermann to commission an urgently needed portrait of President Paul von Hindenburg.

Liebermann promptly showed his visitors to the door and, flinging it open, pointed to the deep snow outside. "If I were to piss on that snow," he declared, "I could make a very fine likeness of Hindenburg."
