Union (Charcoal briquette), 1943

Buhler, Fritz poster: Union (Charcoal briquette)

Buhler's fiery image for a charcoal briquette for home heating was inspired by a Lucian Bernhard poster that was printed thirty years earlier. Bernhard created the first Sachplakat in 1905 in Berlin; Buhler's tromp l'oeil image was even more spectacular.
