Géza Blattner (1893-1967) lived in Paris from 1925, where he created the Arc-en-Ciel (Rainbow) puppet theater. His company caused a great surprise with its avant-garde productions, which showed the influence of constructivism and art deco, often with flat figures, but also had grotesque marionette plays. The Tragedy of Man was presented at the World Exhibition in Paris in 1937, and was awarded a gold medal. The collection include the flyer for one of the artist's last collection exhibitions in Budapest in 1924. André Kertész followed the theater with his camera and took countless photos of the theater's performances, puppet characters and the private lives of the troupe members. Later, Brassaï, alias Gyula Halász, also took photos for them. With the collector's stamp of puppeteer Lehel Óhidy (1925-1977).
