        Hans Rudi Erdt was one of the most prolific and prestigious poster artists in Berlin at the beginning of the 20th century. Along with three of the other most prominent designers of the era, Lucian Bernhard, Julius Klinger and Julius Gipkens, Erdt worked for the printer Hollerbaum & Schmidt. He produced posters for a wide variety of clients, and his designs, punctuated by flat colors and strong outlines, reflect his talent as a draftsman, along with a great sense of stylization and a flair for layout. DFP-III 763, Wember 261.
