Further Information:

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.


Augustin Tschinkel (1905-1983), studied at the Academy of Fine Arts in Prague and became in the 1920s member of the artists' group "Die Gruppe progressiver Künstler" founded by Franz Wilhelm Seiwert and Heinrich Hoerle (with other members like Otto Freundlich, Gerd Arntz and August Sander, Cologne). He collaborated with "Das Gesellschafts- und Wirtschaftsmuseum" ("Museum of Society and Economy") under the directorship of Gerd Arntz, Vienna 1929-1930 and contributed in "A bis Z" 1930-1933 the periodical of the group. Tschinkel participated in the exhibition "Politische Konstruktivisten. Die Progressiven 1919-1933", Berlin 1975. His one-man show "Augustin Tschinkel. Grafiek, Illustraties, Typografie“ was shown at Haags Gemeentemuseum, Den Haag 1976. Tschinkel is an author of numerous books and articles about art and design.
