(1887 - 1975)
With his work, Max Ackermann succeeded in building a bridge from the 19th to the late 20th century. In a letter to Ackermann, Adolf Hölzel names him as the perfector of his idea of color. He embraced Tachism and, most recently, influences of Pop Art. In the technique of pastel, to be classified between painting and drawing, from the 1950s he found his way in search of the harmony of form and color. In the music of Bach, Beethoven and Stravinsky he sought to fathom the longing for the absolute. The inspirations through them resound, for example, in the titles such as "An die Freude".
