(*) Thilo Friedrich Maatsch (1900, Braunschweig – 1983) was a German artist and an exponent of abstract art, constructivism and concrete art.
He came into contact with art while visiting exhibitions during his youth. 18 years after his birth, he founded with Johannes Molzahn and Rudolf Jahns the "Gesellschaft der Freunde junger Kunst" (Society of the adorer of young art) which was joined by various distinguished artists such as Fr. Ej. Lyonel Feininger y Paul Klee. The collector Otto Ralfs supported this organisation and Kandinsky designed the seal. Maatsch's circle of friends and acquaintances were among the aforementioned artists, László Moholy-Nagy, William Wauer, and Lothar Schreyer. Kandinsky fostered Maatsch's talent and admired him as his own father. Due to financial problems, Maatsch was unable to study at the Bauhaus.
Moholy-Nagy, Kandinsky and Klee allowed him to work in his studios. Kandinsky, along with the Bauhaus, would most likely discover a permit for Maatsch to attend the Bauhaus in Berlin and Weimar on his holiday (he worked as a teacher at Königslutter) without paying fees.
In 1925 he joined the November Group and from this year onwards until 1932 he participated annually in the famous "Große Berliner Kunstausstellung". In 1927, Herwarth Walden, one of the most important discoverers and promoters of German avant-garde art in the early 20th century, organised an exhibition for Maatsch in his prestigious gallery "Der Sturm". Determined by Nazi politics, his artwork was considered degenerate. Maatsch's rediscovery occurred in 1966.
