Munich Zoo Eagles Poster 1911
In my eyes Ludwig Hohlwein (1874 – 1949) is quite possibly the greatest poster artist that ever lived. His stunning artwork was primarily influenced by the collage technique of the Beggarstaff Brothers, and uses a masterful combination of illustration & design. After dropping plenty of hints I got this fantastic eagles poster (advertising the opening of Munich Zoo in 1911) for my birthday. It joins a striking leopard one I already have, and with over 3000 Hohlwein poster prints to choose from theres something for everyone so get involved!
