Beschreibung:

LUDWIG HOHLWEIN (1874-1949) RIQUET - TEE. Circa 1925. 43 1/2x29 3/4 inches, 110 1/2x75 1/2 cm. Emil Gerasch, Leipzig. Condition B+: repaired tears at edges, some slightly into image; replaced losses in right margin; restoration along vertical and horizontal folds. Riquet, purveyors of exotic chocolates and teas, was one of Hohlwein's biggest clients. In the many posters he designed for the firm, he would always strive to depict exotic images connected to the countries from which the products were imported. Here, against a sharp yellow background, in front of an unusual blue plant, he represents a statue of Buddha. The image is infused with drama thanks to the lighting that Hohlwein creates using his unique strokes-of-color treatment. Rare. Hohlwein / Stuttgart 188.
