Max Band. River Landscape. 1965. Cardboard, oil, 35 x 45 VŽM 7361           

The renewed exhibition Litvaks and the Lithuanian School of Art held at the Samuel Bak Museum (VGMJH) presents a delicate landscape with one of the most beautiful bridges over the Sein River in Paris named after Alexander III.
The author of the romantic landscape Max Band (Naumiestis, 1900 - USA, 1974) painted this River Landscape in 1965 when living in the United States. Throughout his life, Max Band, a master of portrait and landscape, paid special attention to Paris, a city where his pictorial style, full of subtle and gloomy lyricism, was formed. With the help of expressive strokes and cold colours, the artist creates captivating cold waves of the Seine and the morning mist, with sculptural columns of the bridge, coastal trees and the facade of the building drowning in it. Currently, two more paintings by Max Band are on display at the exhibition Litvaks and the Lithuanian School of Art, that is Portrait of a Boy (first half of the 20th century) and Jerusalem landscape (first half of the 20th century).
The Vilna Gaon Museum of Jewish History boasts 9 works of graphic art and paintings by Max Band. His works are also held at M.K. Čiurlionis National Museum of Art, Lithuanian National Museum of Art, Jewish Museum Berlin, Luxembourg Museum in Paris, California Art Museum, and private collections in the USA, Israel and Lithuania.
