Rudolf Jahns

 

Rudolf Jahns (1896 - 1983) was a German painter and graphic artist. His artistic work spanned six decades from the end of the First World War to the early 1980s. Jahns occupies a special position among the constructivists. He is described as a “romantic constructivist” (J. Büchner), a poet and musician among the painters of his time. Since 1927 he has belonged to the circle of "abstract hanover" together with Kurt Schwitters, Carl Buchheister, Hans Nitzschke and Friedrich Vordemberge-Gildewart.
