After designing images in a geometric Art Deco style (Gaba, 1927) and toying with Surrealism (PKZ, 1934), Stoecklin turned towards the Objekt Plakat, or the New Objectivity. In this style, not only were products rendered in a hyper-realistic manner, without abstraction or interpretation, but lithographic techniques were also used at an elevated and precise level, allowing for clearer, crisper printing than ever before. Stoecklin was clearly a master of this form (perfecting the style with this and the following lot for Meta briquettes). This is the German version. Stoecklin 32, Realismes 76 (var), Margadant 428, Swiss Poster Art p. B5, Design Graphique p. 59, Encyclopedie de l'Affiche p. 98, Magic of Things 40, MoMA 313.1999.
