Ludwig Hohlwein (German, 1874 – 1949)
A rare original poster for Mercedes dated 1914.
Conservation linen mounted, framed with an acid-free mount and glazed with UV resistant Perspex.
Overall size: 52 x 39 inches (132 x 99 cm).
Hohlwein was a highly versatile and prolific German poster artist who enjoyed a long career spanning both World Wars. His signature two dimensional style was enhanced by the technique of applying colour and letting it dry at differing times, and overprinting to create depth and
shading. Hohlwein also produced posters for Audi, BMW, Lufthansa and Zeiss, amongst others.
