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.


The German astrologer Thomas Ring (born on 28.11.1892 in Nuremberg, Germany, died on 24.08.1983 in Schaerding, Austria) greatly contributed to the psychological astrology movement. He established "revised" or modern astrology in Germany. Although little of Ring's work has been translated into English, his influence in German-language astrology is significant. Thomas Ring initially became known as a painter. He spent his youth in Berlin where he began an arts degree in 1911, and although he concentrated on astrology from about the 1920s he never lost his keen interest in the arts. Before then he had rejected astrology and concentrated instead on art, philosophy and psychology. His interest in astrology grew during his time as a prisoner of war.
