Max Kahn made woodcuts from the late 40's through the early 60's. Typically carving into planks he also built up the panel, as in "Lobster Pot". He often used multiple panels and subtle textures, thus he was able to achieve tonal variation not often seen in woodcuts. Throughout Max's work his sense of humor can be seen. One woodcut was made from an old restaurant (or bar) table which had been carved full of graffiti over the years.
