Today in History: Ludwig Sütterlin dies in 1917

101 years ago today, German graphic designer Ludwig Sütterlin (1865–1917) died. Sütterlin created the now famous poster for the Berlin Industrial Exhibition of 1896. The artist is best known, however, for designing the old German handwriting script (Sütterlin script or Sütterlin). In 1911, Sütterlin was commissioned by the Prussian Ministry for Culture to create a modern handwriting script that would set a basis for school children. His script of wide curves and sharp angles was taught in German schools from 1915 to 1941 (it became a national standard in 1934).

Today in History: Raymond Savignac born in 1907

Today in History: Raymond Savignac born in 1907

We have always been fascinated with the poster art by Raymond Savignac (1907 – 2002). The French artist began his career in 1935 at the Alliance Graphique under the supervision of Cassandre. He gained fame in 1949 with the publication of his first major poster, Mon Savon. As he states in his autobiography: “I was born at the age of 41, weaned on the udder of the Monsavon cow.” Savignac’s strength was combining a complex concept in a simple design, combined with humor. He is said to be among France’s most influential poster artists of the past fifty years.

History: Heinrich Campendonk born in 1889

Today in History: Heinrich Campendonk born in 1889

The German-born painter and graphic designer (who later became a Naturalized Dutch citizen) was born on November 3 and we like to take this opportunity to promote his poster “Die Farbe” which we are offering in our poster auction tomorrow. “Die Farbe” is an exceptionally rare, important poster advertising an exhibition devoted to ‘color.’ Printed in black-and-white, the rainbow and highlighted green area are all hand-tinted. The show itself featured some of the most important avant-garde artists of the era, including Kandinsky, Marc, Delaunay, Macke, Braque, Picasso, Klee, Gris, Naun, and Nolde. Interestingly, a list of the honorariums paid to the participants reveals that Campendonk received 560 marks for his contributions (which included this poster), while Kandinsky received a mere 200.
