Here is a truly a cheerful leisure poster which reminds of the universe in "The Great Gatsby" - the famous novel from 1925 by Fitzgerald.
A scene with a mixed doubles tennis match at a resort area is played before our eyes. Everyone seems to enjoy themselves and the weather is perfect for a tennis match. There is no evidence on why the poster was made or who ordered it but the print is likely an art poster or a commercial poster.
The poster is made by the skilled and infamous German artist Jupp Wiertz (1988-1939). Wiertz made several commercial travel posters with zeppeliners but also advertisements for Shell and Vouge. Sadly, he died of an infection caused by ink when he was drawing a poster in his workshop. Today he is celebrated as one of the most important poster artists in Germany.
The poster is printed on high quality paper and ink and is in very good condition and has never been restored in any way.
