The wealth of possible interpretations of the most prominent Jewish figure of legend, the Golem, in one publication.

Max Neumann

The painter Max Neumann examines the symbolism of the human being in an incomparable way, with strangely distant figures that are both graceful, calm and dangerous and enigmatic.
Herwig Guratzsch writes, “we encounter another Neumann, who has outgrown the artist who abandoned himself to the mysteries of the night and its untameable eeriness. Most of the works do not feature night as the dominant element, yet the spookiness it generates is still rampant. The methods of taming the “dark fever” are grotesque and surreal, and caricature is applied in a delightful manner as an artistic statement to be taken seriously“
