Did you know?

Bohm created this painting while working on a commissioned mural for the Cuyahoga County Courthouse.


Painted during expatriate Max Bohm’s visit to his hometown in Cleveland, Lucy depicts a former love interest, who years earlier turned down the artist’s marriage proposal because she doubted his ability to earn a steady income. During the intervening time, Bohm had wed someone else and established himself as a noted painter, earning success particularly in France and England.
