Max Pollak

Max Pollak was born in Prague, Czechoslovakia, and studied art at the Vienna Academy of Art with Max Unger and Ferdinand Schmutzer. Etching was his most popular medium, whereby he applied color to the plate which resulted in striking, unique impressions. Some of his favorite studies were of dancers and people in the theater, located in Europe. Using an etching needle and applying color to the plate by hand, Pollak's portraits, capture a moment of movement in time. He spent some time in Paris and came to the United States in 1927 where he eventually resided in New York and San Francisco. A great deal of his work was done in New York, San Francisco, Mexico, Guatemala, Paris, and various parts of Europe. Pollak was a member of the Chicago Society of Etchers and the California Society of Etchers where he won numerous awards.
