Light beer never looked better than in this sexy hyper-realistic Object Poster by Birkhauser from 1957. It is one half of a pair of posters created for the Swiss Beer Association - the other was a glass of dark beer on a white background held by a green gloved hand. Not a word of text - but none needed!
Birkhauser apprenticed with Stoecklin from 1931 to 1934, in whose studio he created his first poster. It was an object poster of a button, done for the Zurich clothing store PKZ, which is one of the most prized Swiss posters of all time. Throughout the '40s and '50s he produced masterpiece after masterpiece in the super- realist style.
