• Julius Engelhard: A Lot Like Hohlwein

    2 monthes ago - By Art Contrarian

    Julius Ussy Engelhard (1883-1964) was born in Sumatra, Dutch East Indies, and made his poster art career in Munich. Some biographical information is here .
    Engelhard was influenced by Munich's leading poster artist Ludwig Hohlwein (1874-1949), who I wrote about here. That influence seems to have been greatest before 1920. Thereafter, Engelhard's style became more versatile.
    Examples of his work are below, with caption translations by me.
