Roland Holst was a professor and director of the Rijks Academy in Amsterdam, and one of the most prestigious artists in Holland. Strongly influenced by William Morris, his work was highly personal and featured flawless craftsmanship. He executed only 16 posters, nine of the most brilliant being for the theatre, where he often designed stage sets and costumes.

The extremely rare Lucifer is considered the artist's masterwork and was personally printed by him. The subject matter fit Roland Holst's Symbolist and deeply moralistic leanings perfectly (he was a devout Socialist). Here we see the fallen archangel Lucifer creating the rift between good and evil, as he decends into the abyss.

In excellent condition.
