Ludwig Hohlwein

Ludwig Hohlwein (1874-1949) was a German posterist artist, hailing from Weisbaden. He was known for his unique avant garde poster designs, which included German government propaganda posters crafted during World War I. During World War II, Hohlwein created posters supporting the National Socialist party. He also created commercial advertising artwork for such noteworthy companies as Cadillac. However, the majority of Hohlwein's works primarily focused on wildlife, hunting, and human figures.
