Collection: Max Thalmann   1890 - 1945 

Thalmann worked primarily as a bookbinder and illustrator but, in between, did 3 portfolios that used the stark geometric lines and angles, symmetry and simplicity that was taught at the Bauhaus. His images also embraced the Japanese concept of "Notan" involving the interplay of light and dark. 'Notan' means dark versus light harmony, using the simple concept of contrasting light and dark shapes, or, black versus white.
