MITSCHEK Size: 49 3/4 x 37 1/2 in./126.5 x 95.2 cm Bravne & Schwenke, Wien Formed by Karl Luegar in 1893, the Christian Social Party was a conservative Austrian political party largely influenced by the church. At the time of this poster it had the largest following in the country, and had taken on a distinctly anti-Semitic stance. Here, the Party removes the blindfolds on the masses to reveal the debauched and dishonest nature of certain politicians, intellectuals, and the wealthy.
