 This gifted German artist could be one of the poster collector's favorites, if only there were some posters of his to collect. He did only a few, and all of those are so rare that most poster enthusiasts never come across them. His designs are a quaint amalgam of caricature and fantasy which he himself called "suggestive dreams." With an unerring instinct for color, and an exquisitely refined taste of subtle irony, he created a body of work that is uniquely individualistic-small but choice. Schnackenberg created several posters for this duo of Munich ballet performers, of which this is the most traditionally expressive.
Year 1918.
