Angela Thomas, A Subversive Gleam: Max Bill and His Time 1908-1939

Max Bill (1908–1994) was a Swiss polymath bridging the worlds of art, design, and architecture. Dr. Angela Thomas, art historian and widow of the artist, retraces Max Bill’s biography, from his childhood to his training at the Bauhaus, his return to Zurich, and on until the late 1930s. She meticulously dissects Max Bill’s journey through his exchanges with his family, teachers, and peers–and their individual respective life trajectories. In a highly unconventional meander through extraordinary biographies, she thus exposes the web-like private and public constellations in which Bill evolved. [publisher’s information]
