About

Walter Schnackenberg’s most famous image, an extraordinary Toulouse-Lautrec homage promoting theatrical cabaret performance at the Deutsche Theater in Munich. The costume and poster designs of Walter Schnakenberg defined ballet and cabaret during Germany’s Weimar Republic. “The modern poster as we know it–large, colorful images printed in quantities on paper–is a relatively modern invention, coming to a recognizable form just before the close of the 19th century. While Paris was unquestionably the center of the world when it came to Poster Art at the opening of the movement, by 1910 Germany had established itself as a landmark for groundbreaking graphic artists. With advances in lithography, German printers were creating some of the most powerful ink-on-paper works in Europe; the simple elegance of the German aesthetic combined with sophisticated printing techniques make the lithographed art posters of this era more kin to oil paintings than contemporary posters.” -Quotes from Transcendent Luxury by Thomas Negovan (2016) This lithograph was published circa 1920 and is presented in a custom metallic frame with hand-wrapped silk sapphire-colored mat and silver fillet. This artwork arrives accompanied by a certificate of authenticity. Notable museum collections and institutions featuring works by Walter Schnackenberg include: Victoria and Albert Museum; Virginia Museum of Fine Arts; Cooper Hewitt, Smithsonian Design Library
