        El Libro de las Profesias

      Madrid: Testimonio Compañía Editorial y el Patrimonio Nacional, 1984. Facsimile. Hardcover. Fine. Quarto. Bound in decorative leather with Moorish-styled brass accent studs on board. 30x22 cm. Housed in a grey and black slipcase. Limited edition, this is number 384/750 (of which only 683 were for sale). Written after his third new world voyage (1501-1505), it is a journal of apocalyptic prophecies and observations by the aging explorer as he neared the end of his life. An impeccably done exact replica of the original handwritten copy housed in the Biblioteca Capitular and Columbina in Seville. The artists who prepared the work under the direction of reknowned book artist Cesar Olmos faithfully and painstakingly recreated every nuance from the original: tears, edgewear, silverfishing, and - yes - even tape repairs. A marvellous book, as worthy as an artists' book as a glimpse into history. Does not include the companion study volume. In fine condition (naturally excepting the deliberately contrived "flaws") in a slipcase with one bumped corner and minor edgewear.

Entstanden ist das attraktive Gemälde entweder während Lahs' Aufenthalt in Kolumbien zwischen 1928 und 1930, oder nach seiner Flucht aus Deutschland nach Südfrankreich bzw. Jugoslawien und Albanien.. 1919 erhielt Lahs seine erste Einzelausstellung in der Galerie Flechtheim, Düsseldorf. 1921 folgte eine Ausstellung bei Frau Ey und er wurde Mitglied im Künstlerbund "Das Junge Rheinland" (1919-1929), später auch der "Rheingruppe" (1923 - ca. 1933 Düsseldorf). 1928 siedelte er nach Kolumbien über und wurde Direktor der Academia de Pintura in Medellin. Ab 1930 lehrte er an der Staatl. Kunstschule Berlin und wurde 1933 als "entartet" entlassen. Nach einer Schutzhaft gelang ihm die Flucht nach Südfrankreich, später nach Jugoslawien und Albanien. Fast das gesamt Frühwerk ist im Kriege verbrannt. Ab 1948 erhielt er eine Professur an der Hochschule für Bildende Künste, Berlin und gehörte in dieser Zeit zum "Freundeskreis der Galerie Gerd Rosen" in Berlin.
