Poster for the Internationale Hygiene-Ausstellung (International Health Exposition), Dresden, 1911
Color lithograph, framed
Signed in image
Image: 35 3/4" x 27"
Provenance: Sotheby's

Full sheet measures 37" x 27 3/4". Full sheet examined out of frame. Sheet is affixed to backing board via two rice paper hinges at upper corners and one piece of tape in lower center margin (material of this tape is unknown). There are some repaired tears and crimps along extreme edges of sheet. Some scuffs to area of surface throughout. There is an area of brown discoloration along lower left (near top of columns) and in upper margin. This appears to be acid migration, possibly from previous mounting/framing. Sheet appears to be backed with rice paper backing, but full verso of sheet cannot be examined due to mounting. There appear to be four rice paper tabs on the corners. Pencil notation in lower right corner of sheet. Some scuffing to white areas of margin. Frame is missing six of its ten screws.
