Max Daches

Max Daches:

Max Daches (1903-1989) was a noted Polish American artist. He was based in Los Angeles for decades and made his living entirely from art. Daches' work is highly collectable and displays a very high level of skill. A fibre art work of his, displayed in the Craft and Folk Art Museum (now called Craft Contemporary) on Wiltshire Blvd., Los Angeles and still displayed on the Internet, was on sale for $1,300.00 U.S., and his works were found in fine galleries in Los Angeles and Palm Springs. Daches' technique for his fibre art was to paint his scene first as a model and then create a fibre art piece with a similar composition. His fibre art works are made with overlapping Shetland wool yarns providing beautiful, multi-dimensional effects to his compositions. Many of his works are stitched tapestries in vivid colours.

Kingston Grandmother connection is grateful to Vivien Ludwin of Kingston, who has generously donated this fine fibre art work. Vivien lived in California in the 1970's and acquired this work during that time.
