RAIMUND JAHN (DATES UNKNOWN) WOHLTÄTIGKEITS - FEST / STADTHALLE CREFELD. 1908.
54 1/2x23 inches, 138 1/2x58 1/2 cm. Kleinsche Druckerei, Crefeld.
Condition B: repaired tears at edges, some affecting text and image; restored losses, creases, abrasions, restoration and overpainting in margins and image; horizontal fold. Two-sheets.
Although very little information exists about Raimund Jahn, contemporary German magazines and books cite him as a Vienna-born professor of painting and bookbinding in Krefeld, Germany. For this festival exhibition, Jahn creates an image which echoes many stylistic and visual tenets of the Secession. The same image was also used on a postcard for the event.
Estimate $3,000 - 4,000
