MAX ERNST (1891-1976)

Max Ernst was a German graphic artist, painter, sculptor and poet. He was a pioneer of Dada.

Max Ernst, actually Maximilian Maria Ernst, was an important painter, graphic artist and sculptor of German origin who was granted American citizenship in 1948 and French citizenship in 1958.
He invented and expanded some techniques such as: B. frottage, collage, grattage or décalcomanie.

For example: Grattage (French for scraping off gratter) is the artistic process in which layers of paint that have been applied on top of each other are scratched away or scraped off with a blade, thus creating new color forms.
