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.
