Biography

Ludwig Hohlwein was a German poster artist, graphic designer, architect and painter. His poster designs were used for stamps both in the Third Reich (1937 "Antiaircraft Defense", 1942 “German Gallop Derby The Blue Ribbon”) and later in the Federal Republic of Germany (1978 "75 Years German Museum Munich"). Animals, hunting, and landscapes dominated his posters. Commercially, Hohlwein designed the logo of the Bavarian Franziskaner beer brewery, which is still in use today. Early in 1933 he joined the Nazi party NSDAP and was involved in the visual appearance of the Third Reich, and as a result, after World War II, was prohibited from working for almost one year. Thereafter Hohlwein became one of the most important advertising poster artists and an icon of advertising art in West Germany. He took part in the Art Competitions in 1932 at Los Angeles and 1936 at Berlin, and designed the official poster for the 1936 Winter Olympics.
