      Diez was a classically trained painter who studied in Munich. He was also involved in advertising art, furniture design, mosaics, frescos, ceramics and engraved glass. In addition to his creative side, he taught at Munich's Kunstgewerbeschule and became president of the Munich Secession. Inspired by Franz von Stuck, many of his early images were contemporary visions of classical Greek motifs. In this very early poster announcing the opening of an International Art Exhibition, including work by the Munich Secessionists, he combines curves and columns to herald the show. DFP-III 583, München 78.
