Further Information:

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.


Ludwig Bernhard Max Olderock (born October 28, 1895 in Hamburg, † December 13, 1972) was an avant-garde representative of German Expressionism. He first exhibited his own works in 1925 and 1927 in the galerie Der Sturm of Herwarth Walden in Berlin. In the 1920s, artists such as Robert Delauney, Marc Chagall and Alexander Archipenko brought their works to the German public. Olderock was a member of the German Werkbund and was associated with the Bauhaus master Lothar Schreyer. During the Third Reich, Max Olderock had a ban on painting and his works in public collections were destroyed. After 1945 he took part in numerous exhibitions u. a. Solo exhibition at Hamburger Kunsthalle 1957, 1961 Sturm Memorial Exhibition in Berlin and at the Cologne exhibition in 1971 "German Avant-garde 1915-1935 - Constructivists“.
