“Magenza” was the Hebrew word for the city of Mainz.
The painter and graphic artist Hans Kohl was born in Mainz in 1897. He studied at the Academy in Munich from 1915 to 1923 and then worked primarily as a portraitist in and around Mainz. He also became well known for two early portfolios, “Das goldene Mainz” (“Golden Mainz”); and "Magenza - fünf Radierungen aus dem jüdischen Mainz" (“Magenza – five etchings from Jewish Mainz”). Hans Kohl died in Hambach in 1990.
