Artist: Hohlwein, Ludwig

Born in Munich, Germany in July 1871, he started his professional career as an architect, but in 1895, induced by his love of color and the desire to produce colorful posters, he deserted his profession to begin a new career as a poster designer.

Hohlwein's compositions are always striking and original, his color harmonies unusual and superb, and his technique at once recognizable and inimitable. Many of his productions bear the distinctive mark of an architect, while others are endowed with the qualities of mural decor, while still others denote the influence of Japanese prints. His versatility seems unbounded. 

This poster was formerly part of the Hans Sachs Poster Collection.

Recently linen-backed and ready to frame.
