      A student of the Art Nouveau era who exhibited alongside Gustav Klimt as a fellow member of the Vienna Secession, Kokoschka was a painter, printmaker and writer who became one of the great expressionist artists of the 20th century. Kokoschka traveled to Switzerland to help set up this exhibition held at the gallery of the famed lithographer and stayed for some time in the country painting. The image on the poster is a more complete version of a lithograph he did that year entitled "Self-Portrait from two sides as a painter." "Most of Kokoschka's self-portraits are melancholy . . . the years of 1922-1923 were times of great progress in the watercolor medium . . . an end of the Dresden Expressionism" (German Expressionist Art p. 144). German Expressionist Art 194.
