        ALFRED RÖLLER (1864-1935) SLEVOGT AUSSTELLUNG. 1897.
        17 5/8x16 3/4 inches. Joe Eberle & Co., Vienna.
        Condition B+: creases in margins and image; vertical and horizontal folds. Framed.
        Slevogt was a German impressionist painter who specialized in landscapes. He was one of the last proponents, along with Max Lieberman and Lovis Corinth, of the Freilichtmalerei (Free Painting) style. He studied art at the Munich Academy between 1885 and 1889, and then traveled through Italy, and spent a short time working in Berlin. He resettled in Munich in 1896 and began contributing illustrations to such magazines as Jugend and Simplicissimus. A year after returning to Munich, he was given his own one-man show, which was advertised through this poster. Alfred Röller was a founding member of the Vienna Secession and one of the group's most prolific poster artists. He contributed to Ver Sacrum, the renowned magazine the group published, and became editor after issue 7. This is considered to be one of the most influential Austrian posters; Michael Pabst, in "Wiener Graphik um 1900" writes, "[Röller's] posters, notably those for the Slevogt exhibition and Schneebergbahn inaugurate modern typography" (p. 339). And Bernhard Denscher, in "Öesterreichischer Plakatkunst 1898-1938" writes that Röller "with his poster for the Slevogt exhibition belongs to the founders of Austrian poster art" (p. 201).
