OTTO BAUMBERGER (1889-1961) MÖBEL - HURST ZÜRICH. 1924.
50x35 inches, 127x89 cm. Gebr. Fretz, Zurich.
Condition A- / B+: minor repaired tears, abrasions and restoration at edges; minor abrasions in image; unobtrusive water stains in lower left text; repaired pin holes in corners.
Lending visual emphasis to the term "on top of the world," Baumberger depicts a stylish chair, sitting crown-like atop a giant red orb. Not quite an Object Poster, the image is eye-catching nonetheless and falls into a small, select category of work the artist designed featuring pronounced geometric figures. Rare. Baumberger 113.
