Recently acquired from a Southern California German-American family liquidating a household, are twenty-one watercolor paintings by "Uncle Max" (Markus "Max" Hansen, 1898-), featuring mostly Old World landscapes and street scenes, with a few interiors in the mix. Some are framed in wood, some unframed, some have glass, some do not, some are signed, some are not. The artist was talented but is unknown outside of the family. Born in 1898, he lived in Eppertshausen between Frankfurt and Darmstadt. Hansen served in the German army and was stationed in Russia during the war.
The Russian countryside, according to family members, influenced his art. These can be shipped very economically indeed, if all or most framing is discarded (shipping estimate herewith assumes shipping as now framed etc.). Interested parties are encouraged to ask for more photos as it is difficult to show the group in the nine allowed images. Sizes of the works themselves vary from roughly 8 1/2" by 12" to 12" by 16". Most are toned with age but otherwise in good condition. One is heavily foxed, one has two small punctures. The ones that are signed are dated from 1942 to 1946.
