LOUIS C. KALFF (1897-1976)


39x27 inches, 99x68½ cm. Mouton & Co., The Hague.
Condition A-: darkening around edges, where adhesive was removed; minor restoration and creases in corners; reds slightly attenuated; minor abrasions in image.

The majority of Kalff's posters were for Philips, for whom he worked for nearly 40 years. He also designed a few travel posters, of which this is surely the best - a delightful, light and appealing Art Deco image. This is the German version. Voyage p. 65, Affiche Art Deco p. 103.
