LUDWIG HOHLWEIN (1874-1949)
MAX ZECHBAUER. 1909.
49 1/2x36 1/2 inches, 125 3/4x92 3/4 cm. Graphia, Munich. Condition B+: repaired tears, creases, abrasions and restoration along vertical and horizontal folds and in margins and image.
For this cigar and cigarette merchant, Hohlwein has rejected the clichéd visual motif of the "elegant man smoking." Instead, he takes a bold, dramatic approach and depicts Christopher Columbus holding one of his ships, symbolizing that by discovering America, Columbus enabled tobacco to be brought back to Europe. DFP-III, 1355, Hohlwein / Stuttgart 24, Wember 413.
