    This poster is currently unbacked. At check out, you will be given the opportunity to add backing which would cost $175 and take approximately 4 weeks.

    Linen backing is the industry standard of conservation. Canvas is stretchered and a sheet of acid free barrier paper is laid down. The poster is then pasted to the acid free paper using an acid free paste. This process is fully reversible and gives support to the poster. A border of linen is left around the poster and can be used by a framer to mount the poster so that nothing touches the poster itself. Backing is what we recommend for framing, and for any poster needing restoration.

  • Ludwig Hohlwein's design displays many of the typical features of Nazi poster imagery, such as the reliance on black, white and red, as well as the muscular male figure. It was produced to procure charitable aid during the new regime's first winter at a time of great economic depression. The fine example of Nazi manhood represented here is a mythical, racial ideal. Even in this poster directed towards charity there is a reference to the Nazis' absurd notion of Aryan racial supremacy.
