      39 1/2x28 inches, 100 1/4x71 cm. J.E. Wolfensberger, Zurich.
      Condition A-: repaired tears and creases in margins; creases along unobtrusive horizontal fold; pencil notation in lower margin; pencil notation and ink collection stamp in lower right image.
      Burkhard Mangold's artistic career covered several distinct areas including painting, stained glass and poster design. In 1905, he began working with the inimitable Swiss printing house Wolfensberger and soon became one of the pioneers of modern Swiss poster art. Here, the roller skaters are depicted without outline, in the style of Ludwig Hohlwein, but Mangold, in an almost impressionist-style involving small dots of color, weaves a collage of different graphic patterns into a graceful image. Mangold 103.
