Biographical Information

Art Noveau stylized poster advertising the opera Salome during Richard Strauss week in Munich, June 23-28, 1910.

The artist of the poster, Ludwig Hohlwein (1874-1949), had trained as an architect in Munich before becoming a commercial poster designer in Berlin. He was famous for working in the "Sachplakat" style of design, known for its simple yet bold designs, with minimal text and flat color choices. Hohlwein became a member of the Nazi party and made propogandistic poster designers under the supervision of Joseph Goebbels and the Ministry of Propoganda and Enlightenment.
