Leo Maillet

Frankfurt am Main 1902 — 1990 Bellinzona

Leo Maillet (Leopold Mayer) was born in Frankfurt am Main, the son of the Jewish businessman. Maillet began a commercial and banking apprenticeship in 1918, and worked in his father’s fashion store for hats. In 1925, he enrolled at the Städel Institute, studying in the graphic art class of Franz Karl Delavilla. In 1930, Maillet was accepted into the master class of Max Beckmann and was given his own studio in the Städel Institute. After the sudden death of his father in 1932, Maillet had to interrupt his studies in order to run the family business. Beckmann’s class was dissolved, and their works in the Städel Institute were destroyed, after the Nazis assumed power in 1933. Maillet’s family business was confiscated, and he had to give up his studio. He tried to emigrate but ended up returning to Frankfurt. In 1935 he finally emigrated to Paris, where he found work as a printer and engraver in the workshop of Roger Lacourière, which was used by Pablo Picasso and Joan Miró.
