I see that my sister, Kathleen, and my cousin, Lisa, have contributed to the site. Grandfather Meyer-Radon was a remarkable man. One family friend said that "He played the violin like a gypsy". He led an architectural firm in Germany before and after WWI, designing model, planned communities in Berlin and Hamburg. He fought in WWI on the Eastern Front as a communications officer and emigrated to the U.S. in 1923. I remember his art in his Glendale home. He did a number of copperplate etchings, of nature themes and of formal and fantastic architectural scenes. He loved the artist Piranesi and was clearly influenced by his artwork. He described himself as "an architect of everything" during his work with Allied Architects. He maintained friendships with Neutra, Schindler and Lloyd Wright. Can you photograph your picture and send it to me? I was privileged to have known such a talented man.

I believe I have a picture made by Radon. He simply signed the picture Radon. I was curious and googled the name and came up with this website. It fits. The picture was given to my partner by her father who lived in the San Fernando Valley. How do I know if it is his work. What kind of things did he pain? Thanks,

Kurt Meyer-Radon was my Grandfather and I would love to learn more about his artwork and show in Eagle Rock in the 1920's. Thanks





Not that kind of doctor
Lisa Radon (08/06/2006)
Kurt Meyer-Radon was my grandfather. He was, in fact, not a physician, but an architect. In Germany, one who received a doctorate degree was addressed as Herr Doktor. And even when he moved to the United States, he was often addressed as Dr. Meyer-Radon.
