Biography

German artist Hartmuth Pfeil studied from 1910-14 at the München Kunstgewerbeschule, before serving in World War I as a pilot. He produced posters, trademarks, publicities, and illustrations in Darmstadt. From 1924-40 he designed for the printing firm Roetherdruck, Darmstadt. From 1924-41 he illustrated for the daily newspaper Darmstädter Tageblatt, and from 1948 for the Darmstädter Echo.

Pfeil caricatured life, especially in the post-war period, especially notable for the beanpole Pimm, in a far too large, patched suit with his dog Butzje moved through the destroyed city of Darmstadt, yet never lost his optimism, despite his hunger. This figure is still one of the best-known figures by Pfeil.
