Max Doerner (1870-1939) was a German painter, restorer andart theorist. Doerner studied in Munich at the Academy of Fine Arts andwas a student of Johann Caspar Herterich and Wilhelm von Diez. His brushwork was equal to the impressionists as he sought his subjects especially in the countryside around the Ammersee. During his studies in Holland and Italy, he became familiar with the techniques of the old painting and studied especially the frescoes in Pompeii. His research has fundamentally changed the previous approach of restoration. When he published THE MATERIALS OF THE ARTIST AND THEIR USE IN PAINTING his techniques spread worldwide.In 1911, Doerner was a lecturer in painting at the Munich Academy, later in 1921 he was appointed professor. In 1937, the Munich plant Testing and Research Institute was founded, whose leadership he took over. This institute exists even today and is now named the Doerner Institute, which houses the Bavarian State Paintings Collections.
