HERBERT MATTER (1907-1984)


50x35 3/4 inches, 127x90 3/4 cm. Orell Fussli, Zurich.

Although best known for his work in the field of photomontage, Matter's earlier posters show that before his foray into the avant-garde, he had a firm command of graphic design and composition. This poster was designed in the same year as his famous image for PKZ. Swiss Tourist 149.
