Description:
LUDWIG HOHLWEIN (1874-1949) HERMANN SCHERRER. 1907. 43 1/4x31 1/4 inches, 110x79 1/2 cm. Schön & Maison, Munich. Condition B: extensive repaired tears in margins and image; creases, abrasions, small restored losses and restoration in margins and image and along sharp vertical and horizontal folds; sharp creasing in left margin; tape stain in upper right margin. Mounted on Japan. An absolute masterpiece of modern graphic design, Hohlwein referred to this poster as "The man with the saddle." The use of a subdued background serves to delineate the overall image from the checkered riding pants and scarlet waist coat that Hohlwein constructed in a cut-out fashion, inventing a revolutionary style of illustration in the process. This image was so striking that it became an emblem of the company, which used it on catalogue covers and even on their clothing labels. When the German design magazine Gebrauchsgraphik dedicated an entire issue to Hohlwein, the artist drew a modernized version of the image, which shows just how important it was to Hohlwein himself. This is a rare variation with black text.

Sale 2467 Lot 68 LUDWIG HOHLWEIN (1874-1949) WILHELM MOZER. 1909. 48 3/4x36 1/4 inches, 123 3/4x92 cm. G. Schuh & Cie., Munich. Condition B+: repaired tears, minor losses, creases and abrasions in margins; creases in image; light water stain in lower left corner. An image as succulent as it is well-executed. For the Wilhelm Mozer delicatessen and food store, Hohlwein has created an overloaded table of delectable comestibles: lobster, roses, oranges, lemons, champagne, caviar and brandy. The table is so bountifully laden that, like a cornucopia, it runneth over, and Hohlwein captures this sense of plenty by having the food actually extend past the boundaries of the borders, as if there weren't enough room to hold it all.

Description:
LUDWIG HOHLWEIN (1874-1949) [TURF.] Group of 3 plates. 1909. Each 19 1/2x19 3/4 inches, 49 1/2x50 1/4 cm. [Kunst Verlagsanstalt Graphia, Munich.] Condition varies, generally A-: light mat staining in margins; hinged to mat at top edge. Paper. Framed. Turf was a portfolio of twelve images depicting all aspects of horse racing: the public, the jockeys, track-side scenes and the horses themselves. With its flat colors and absence of outlines, it is reminiscent of the work of one of the Beggarstaff Brothers - William Nicholson, whose portfolios London Types (1898) and Twelve Portraits (1899) presentimages rendered in the exact same style and beige, brown and black colorscheme. Hohlwein's images of horse racing are more dynamic than those of Nicholson, and the clever organization of the composition, with the dark ground and the tan sky, the silhouettes in the background, and the detail in front, is a brilliant example of how he could manipulate light and shadow. Hohlwein p. 132.

Description:
Sale 2449 Lot 17 LUDWIG HOHLWEIN (1874-1949) BESUCHET DEN TIERGARTEN. 1912. 40 3/4x29 inches, 103 1/2x73 3/4 cm. Wolfrum & Hauptmann, Nurnberg. Condition A-: tears in margins, some slightly into image; tape on verso along repaired tear in left margin. Paper. Animals of all kinds were a source of inspiration for Hohlwein, and he drew them with an ease and deftness born of respect. Animals feature in many of his posters and he was renowned beyond the poster world for his sketches of them. Thus, he was the obvious choice for a commission to design the poster for the opening of the Munich Zoo in 1911. Over the following year, he designed four additional posters promoting zoos - two more for the zoo in Munich and two for the zoo in Nuremberg, which opened in May 1912. This image, with its clever use of negative space to depict the zebra's stripes, is perhaps one of Hohlwein's rare attempts at humor. It is certainly an exotic and eye-catching combination and may well speak to Hohlwein's desire to put something colorful next to something else black and white. One of two variations, the other reads "Tiergarten Nürnberg."
