JULIUS KLINGER (1876-1942)


26 1/2x17 1/2 inches, 67 1/4x44 1/2 cm. Hollerbaum & Schmidt, Berlin.
Condition B: creases and restoration at edges, in image and along vertical fold; repaired tears at edges.

Advertising a National Flying Week event, Klinger has created an unforgettable image of four anachronistic orange men in identical ruffled collars, their heads, and noses, pointing straight up to the sky, watching the (unseen) activity over head. One of several variations used in different years, always advertising a flying exhibition. Klinger 74, Rademacher p. 106 (var), Kunst Kommerce Visionen 253.
