Max Renneisen (born 1977) is a German painter based in Berlin. It is vital to his paintings and drawings to build on the legacy of the Old Masters and to explore the painterly possibilities of the imitation of nature in the light of modern imagery. Working in a range of media and formats, from small drawings on paper to large-scale oil paintings on canvas, Max Renneisen is particularly concerned with general issues such as human relationship with nature and the relationship between ideal and reality.

Statement about AOAP Submitted Artwork
Paradise Lost is a continuing group of paintings and drawings, which renews the classical subject of the nude in nature. While the figures derive from modern photographic material found primarily in magazines, the surrounding landscapes are mere constructions inspired by Old Masters paintings.
