Description

Here's a terrific poster design from the first decade of the 20th century by German graphic artist Lucian Bernhard. Bernhard's designs single-handedly changed the look of German advertising art beginning in 1906, when he entered a poster competition sponsored by the Priester match company. He won the competition and established a new way of visually simplifying and "heroizing" everyday consumer objects, a new method that came to be known as "Sachplakat," or object poster. In this example, dating from 1908, the consumer objects are gloves for Ranniger's.

I believe that this smaller reproduction of the original poster design is a lithographic image from the German publication "Das Plakat," which was published from 1910 until 1921. It was a celebrated - and influential - poster journal, promoting both the "Sachplakat" style and the artists who created the posters. Slightly below the center the image are the words "Hergestellt durch Hollerbaum & Schmidt, Berlin N. 65." Translated, it's "Manufactured by Hollerbaum & Schmidt, Berlin N. 65th." Hollerbaum & Schmidt was a Berlin-based printing firm & advertising agency that represented the Berliner Plakat, which was a group of artists & designers doing work in the "Sachplakat" style.

The image is 9 5/16 inches wide by 6 5/8 inches high. The sheet it's printed on is 11 1/2 inches wide by about 8 3/8 inches high and the image is printed slightly higher on the left than on the right, something easily corrected when it's matted for framing.

Processing time for this item will be brief; I like to get my orders shipped within 48 hours, typically using Priority Shipping via the USPS.

Also, please note that I DO NOT currently ship outside the United States.
