The listing is for a original vintage mid-century pull down biology school chart. It is entitled "Kohlweissling" in German (this translates to "Cabbage white butterfly" in English). The poster features stunning illustrations of the life and metamorphosis of the butterfly.

This poster was created during the middle of the last century, in a period of educational reform in Germany. The series was named after the three men who created it (Jung, Koch, and Quentell): a doctor, an artist, and a teacher. Together, they sought to improve the quality of educational materials in Germany; these charts were the product of their collaboration. The posters are famous for their vibrant colors and scientific detail. One of the most notable features about this series is absence of text, making the posters a beautiful and incredibly versatile teaching tool (translation was not required).

This classroom chart would undoubtedly make a lovely addition to any room, and would not only serve as a beautiful wall hanging but a unique and interesting conversation piece.

The wall hanging is printed on paper and backed with linen. It has black wooden rods on the top and bottom end. It was printed in 1971 in Dusseldorf, Germany by Lehrmittelverlag Hagemann.

CONDITION:
The poster is in excellent vintage condition, showing more vibrant colors and much less wear than similar posters from this era. There is one small diagonal tear in the poster near the top (detail Photo 5), measuring 2 cm or about 0.75" in length.

DIMENSIONS:
Width (paper on linen): 81.5 cm (32.0")
Width (wooden dowels): 95 cm (37.4")
Length: 116 cm (45.7")

We are happy to provide additional photos upon request.
