Maks Haneman (1882 – 1941?)

Maks Haneman. Jews praying in front of the Western Wall

Dobra praca i nie razi swoją orientalną tematyką. Dwa oleje Maksa Hanemana (Maxa Hannemana) o podobnej tematyce i podobnych tytułach znajdują się w zbiorach Żydowskiego Instytutu Historycznego w Warszawie. Sporo bardzo dobrych zakopiańskich pejzaży tego malarza było na aukcjach Polsce, jak też niezłych portretów. Haneman to kolejna ofiara ludobójstwa niemieckiego.

MAKS HANEMAN (1882-1941). Maks Haneman was born in 1882 in Lodz and started to study in the Academy of Fine Arts of Krakow in 1907, as a disciple of Leon Wyczolkowski and Teodor Axentowicz. After spending several years at university and three years at the Fine Arts School in Warsaw, he returned to the Academy of Fine Arts in Krakow where he graduated in 1920. He travelled twice to Palestine, which had a strong influence on his work. Views of the holy sites of all three monotheistic religions were present in the multiple exhibitions of his paintings in Poland (Lodz, Krakow, Warsaw). He lived in the Polish Tatra mountains in Zakopane for a certain time and painted landscapes inspired by this region. At the outbreak of World War II, he returned to Lodz and was deprived of all his properties and ended up in the Lodz ghetto where he probably died between 1941 and 1944. Estimate 3,000 – 5,000 euro.
