Max Thalmann
Modern (19th century-1945) Graphic Arts
(Rudolstadt, Germany, August 13, 1890 - September 21, 1944, Jena, Germany)

Max Thalmann was an illustrator and designer best known for his woodcut portfolios. He lived in Germany throughout his life and worked mostly as a graphic designer and bookbinder. Thalmann was a pupil of Henry van de Velde, Otto Dorfner, and Walther Klemm and was a junior instructor at the Bauhaus in Weimar, Germany. His artistic production consists mainly of three bodies of work: The Passion; Der Dom (The Cathedral); and Amerika im Holzschnitt (America in Woodcuts). During the 1930s, he transitioned from woodcuts to drawings, watercolors, and pastels, most of which were inspired by a trip he took to the Nile River in 1930. Throughout the 1930s, he also designed books for the Eugen Dieterich publishing house in Jena, Germany.
