Description: Hans Falk is considered one of Switzerland's finest artists of the 20th century. His insightful style and warm expressive palette are evident....Hans Falk drew or painted only something that he "saw himself". His painterly style is immediately recognizable in posters. More of an illustrator than a poster designer, his brilliant sense of layout works marvelously in the poster format. Graphic designer, printmaker, draftsman, illustrator and painter, Falk was called the "Lautrec" of the 20th century. Most of his posters are stone lithographs. Ferien is Swiss for "vacation". Commissioned by the Swiss Government in 1942 to create a poster to remind the people to relax and take time to "smell the flowers", Falk at the age of 24 created this image of a Maurice Chevalier type of character strolling in a park that earned him the title..The Lautrec of the 20th century. Rare. This is an original vintage poster, printed in 1942.
