Italienischer Festball. 1939.
Hohlwein’s mastery of making any event sizzle is evident in this poster for a gala that places Italy in the heart of Munich, specifically in the environs of the Deutschen Theater. And for all the sophisticated panache of the design, one can’t help but wonder if this was, at least in part, an evening of political importance, seeing as the WWII Axis powers solidified their compact with the Italo-German alliance four months after this soirée.
