Further Information:

Eine seltene Edition aus dem Sammelportfolio La Lune en Rodage, welches in drei Ausgaben in den Jahren 1960, 1965 und 1977 von Carl Laszlo herausgegeben wurde. Diese unnummerierte Kopie von 230 Exemplaren (65 Hors Commerce Editionen waren unnummeriert) gehört zum dritten Band von La Lune en Rodage. Der Basler Kunsthändler Carl Laszlo stellte für die Publikationen insgesamt 180 Kunstwerke zusammen - alles Positionen der grössten Künstler der europäischen Avantgarde-Szene zwischen den 1920er und 1970er Jahren. Einige der Künstler haben mit ihrem Beitrag für das Portfolio einen Wendepunkt in ihrer Produktion und ihren Medien gesetzt: Darunter Enrico Castellani, mit dem einzigen dokumentierten graphischen Werkbeitrag oder Piero Manzonis „multiples Achrome“, das einzige vom Künstler produzierte Multiple.
Regelmässig gelangen Bände von La Lune en Rodage in wichtige internationale Auktionen, wie zum Beispiel diese hier bei Christie’s:

A rare limited edition of the portable collection of post-war and contemporary art La Lune en Rodage III. This is an unnumbered copy of 230 editions (65 hors commerce were unnumbered) and part of the third serie of the La Lune en Rodage books. La Lune en Rodage was published in three volumes in 1960, 1965 and 1977 containing a total of approximately 180 art pieces which provide an account of the artistic avant-garde scene between the 1950s and 1970s. The art works were gathered by Carl Laslzo and included the greatest artists of the time who contributed with important pieces, often marking a turning point in their production and carriers: Enrico Castellani’s work for example is his first documented graphic work and Piero Manzoni's multiple Achrome is the only one produced by the artist.


Max Herrmann Mahlmann (born April 4, 1912 in Hamburg, † 2000) was a German Constructivist painter. Mahlmann studied from 1934 to 1938 as a student of Richard Müller at the Academy of Fine Arts in Dresden and initially worked as a stage painter and commercial artist. During the Second World War he was a soldier in the Russian campaign. Mahlmann - heavily influenced by Wassili Kandinsky and Josef Albers - turned to non-objective painting after 1945 and concentrated on geometric-constructivist compositions.
