Max Bucherer

German 1883-1974 

Max Bucherer marked his presence as a significant figure in the realm of art and education in Germany. Emerging as the eleventh child of a merchant family, his artistic journey began after high school. He honed his skills under the tutelage of Heinrich Knirr and the Lithography Artists’ Association, founded by Hans Thoma and eventually he became a graphics teacher in Munich.

His artistic circle included luminaries like Hermann Hesse, and he contributed to book covers, woodcut portraits, and bookplates. After serving in various capacities during World War I, he settled in Zurich, teaching textile arts and establishing himself in the art world. Bucherer’s international exhibitions and prolific painting career solidify his enduring artistic legacy.
