Max Mannheimer (1920) survived the Holocaust as a Jew in a concentration camp. His moving life history has been published in several books in different languages. However, few people are aware of his paintings, which were created under his Hebrew name "ben jakov". This volume assembles a selection of 70 of his works. Max Mannheimer's oeuvre follows his poetic motto "I marry colours". Starting from a completely independent artistic position, since 1955 he has demonstrated tremendous pleasure in experimentation and has created a total of more than one thousand works. His dynamic abstract paintings and drawings are signed "ben jakov" (Son of Jakob) in memory of his father, who was killed in concentration camp. They bear witness to the horror as well as the joy of an eventful life. Together with an introductory essay by Gottfried Knapp, the publication provides for the first time an overview of the paintings of Max Mannheimer which have been created away from the public eye.
