Biography  
Max Band


Max Band was born in Lithuania in 1900. He was drawing and painting from a young age, copying the works of great masters from magazines and books.

Moving to Berlin, he became a student of Willy Jaeckel. In 1926 he went to Paris where the works by Cézanne and Picasso had a significant influence on his work. A year later he had his first solo exhibition in his home country.

In addition to still lifes and landscapes, Band created numerous portraits. After the start of the Second World War he emigrated to America, where he permanently settled in 1954.

Works by the artist are held in the Jewish Museum Berlin and numerous other public collections.
