Description: LUDWIG HOHLWEIN (1874-1949) KAFFEE HAG. 1913.
34 3/4x23 3/4 inches, 88 1/4x60 1/4 cm. Oscar Consee, Munich.
Condition A-: pin holes in top corners; archival tape on verso; discoloration at edges; small stain in image. Paper.
One of Hohlwein's influences as a graphic artist was the work of the Beggarstaff Brothers. Here, Hohlwein's is an incomparably more sophisticated treatment; it is a brazen attempt to position a light-colored character against a white background - Hohlwein made it work. The artistry seems simple, as the figure is depicted with only the barest of forms and strokes and without any outlining, yet it is one of Hohlwein's most impressive, tour-de-forces of graphism. Hohlwein / Stuttgart 110, DFP-III 1456, Wember 428, Modern Poster no. 59, p. 84, Encyclopedie de l'Affiche p. 70, L'Affiche Tennis frontis.
