William Wauer (*1866 Oberwiesenthal †1966 Berlin). His cubist portrait bust of Herwarth Walden is an icon of the Berlin avant-garde: The sculptor, painter and director William Wauer is one of the great artistic personalities of the first half of the 20th century; his works are among the most significant examples of expressionist sculpture. He exhibited in the gallery "Der Sturm", founded the artist group "Die Abstrakten" and worked for the Bauhaus.

A rare limited edition of the portable collection of post-war and contemporary art La Lune en Rodage III. 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.
