Rare c. 1920 Ludwig Hohlwein Steel Helmet Recruitment Poster "Komm Mit Jung Stahl Helm"
1920. We offer an original recruitment poster for the Jung Stahl Helm or Steel Helmets designed by Ludwig Hohlwein. It was produced between WWI and WWII, with institutions listing this with a 1920-1923 range. It is 33” x 23” backed with linen and housed in a fine black frame with the outside dimensions 38 ½” x 27 ½”. The text along the bottom reads “Herausgerber der Stahlhelm, Bund Der Frontsoldaten, Druck, Herm, Sonntag & Co., Munchen.” A young Steel Helmet cadet with a shadowy half smile looks out at the viewer, “KOMM MIT” the poster demands. The ominously striking composition is representative of Hohlwein’s groundbreaking style. Ludwig Hohlwein (1874-1949) was a German poster artist, a pioneer of the Sachplakat style. Condition: There are two light dampstains in the left margin, otherwise very good.
