Lot 208. MAX HANEMAN (1882-1941/44?). Grandfather and granddaughter. Poland, ca. 1930. Oil on panel. Signed lower right. H_73 cm W_49 cm.
Maks Haneman was born in 1882 in Lodz and began studying at the Academy of Fine Arts in Krakow in 1907 as a disciple of Leon Wyczolkowski and Teodor Axentowicz. After spending several years at the university and three years at the Warsaw School of Fine Arts, he returned to the Krakow Academy of Fine Arts, where he graduated in 1920. He travelled twice to Palestine, which had a strong influence on his work. Views of the holy places of the three monotheistic religions were present in the many exhibitions of his paintings in Poland (Lodz, Krakow, Warsaw). He lived for a time in the Polish Tatras in Zakopane and painted landscapes inspired by this region. At the outbreak of the Second World War, he returned to Lodz and was deprived of all his property, ending up in the Lodz ghetto, where he probably died between 1941 and 1944. Estimate 1,500 – 2,500 euro. Pierre Berge & Associes. 12/20/21
