Biography:

Joachim Albrecht (born September 5, 1913 in Kolberg, † April 9, 1997 in Hamburg) was a German artist and an important representative of constructive art. He traveled to Amsterdam, Stockholm, Prague, Vienna, Italy and France from 1931 to 1934. Albrecht studied at the Kunsthochschule Königsberg. During the Second World War, he served as a soldier and was taken prisoner of war from 1945 to 1947. In 1953 he made his first screen prints; In 1957 he became a member of the Deutscher Künstlerbund. He is considered one of the most prominent artists of the concrete-constructive direction in the second half of the last century. Under the influence of Auguste Herbin and Victor Vasarely Albrecht developed in the early 1960s his style, which discovered the area as an independent space. As a member of the "Neue Gruppe Hamburg" he received the Edwin Scharff Prize of the City of Hamburg in 1964. Joachim Albrecht was professor at the College of Fine Arts Hamburg. Thus, Joachim Albrecht also had a decisive influence on artists such as Max Hermann Mahlmann, Winfried Gaul and Timm Ulrichs.

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.
