With his verist paintings and graphic sheets, Max Unold counts among the protagonists of New Objectivity in Germany. After Max Unold, who was part of the circle of avant-garde artists, had initially been occupied intensively with Expressionism, he then found his preferred style in the rather socio-critical New Objectivity, which was committed to subjects such as streets scenes and portraits of working class people. In this context he rendered the scenes in a very dry and sober manner, people in his works seem to be frozen and paralyzed in their existence. The palette of Max Unold is dominated by earthen colors, which he masterly employed. The artist's multi-faceted artistic creation is completed by a comprehensive graphic oeuvre. A large collection of works by the artist, who was honored with, among others, the German Federal Cross of Merit, can be found in the MEWO Kunsthalle in Memmingen, the artists town of birth.
