: The snake as an ambivalent symbol and the serpentine line as form and medium are part of the culture of Surrealism. They link Jackson Pollock to Max Ernst. The focus of the work of Max von Moos is human existence under threat, and the motif of the snake is encountered repeatedly in his painting. In the generation after him , AndrÃ© Thomkins and Aldo Walker, who were familiar with his oeuvre, worked with the form of the snake redeemed as a freely curving line. Paul Klee described the serpentine line as an active line on a walk, moving freely, without goal.
