Ludwig Hohlwein

Interpreting images from different cultures and the past - The Nazi symbol is pretty prominent on this image and when teamed with the Nazi font "Fraktur" makes us realise it was from the era of Hitler. The Bauhaus was shut down at this time as it was believed they were too revolutionary. This image is pretty regressive for its time if we compare it to the kind of designs being produced elsewhere.
