      LEOPOLD STOLBA 1863-1929 SECESSION AUSSTELLUNG. 1905.
      25x17 inches. Alb. Berger, Wein.
      Condition A-: expertly repaired tears in margins.
      This poster was designed for the 24th Secession Exhibition that was dedicated to Christian Art. The image is a pure and simple depiction of a secret symbol that would have been recognizable within certain sects of Christianity: the "P" stands for "Paques" (Easter). It is a strong, monochromatic symbol with sophisticated, yet simple, typography to go along with it. It is beautifully minimal and extremely rare.
