Max Westhauser

Max Westhäuser
(Hildburghausen 1885 - Bielefeld 1958)
German painter, Arts and Crafts and grafic artist. 

This artist working from the city of Bielefeld is only known to me by this hand pulled woodblock print ("Papagei, original Holzschnitt Handabzug") occasionally turning up in auctions. 
8 blocks were used to create this colourful beast and grapes from an unnumbered edition but I've seen a copy numbered 88/150. 
More information and examples of his work would very welcomed.
