Biography

The architect, painter and ceramist Max Laeuger was one of the most important representatives of Art Nouveau in Germany and one of the founders of the German Werkbund in 1907. He was a professor of figure drawing and decoration at the Technical University in Karlsruhe and was also active as an urban planner, landscape gardener and bridge builder. He is regarded as one of the 20th Century pioneers in ceramics.

In 1900, Laeuger received a Gold Medal at the Paris World Fair and another one in 1904 for the design of the German division at the St. Louis World Fair. For the Reichssportfeld in Berlin he designed the building ceramics in 1935-36. His hometown of Lörrach awarded him honorary citizenship in 1939. In 1944 Laeuger was awarded the Goethe Medal for Art and Science, one of the highest artistic awards of Nazi Germany. The "Grand Prix" at the Triennial of Milan in 1951 once again clearly showed the international significance of his ceramic creations.
