Hollandische Kunstausstellung in Krefeld, 1903
In 2011, a retrospective of Johan Thorn Prikker revealed a multi-talented and complex genius who became a pioneer of Modernism in Holland and Germany. Trained in the Arts and Crafts, Symbolist and Art Nouveau traditions, he quickly branched out to Modernist designs in mosaics, ceramics, stained glass, architecture, painting and printing. This poster marks the beginning of the artist's most prolific period, when he moved to Krefeld Germany and took German citizenship. Working as an art professor there, he created this extraordinary poster for a Dutch design exhibition at the Kaiser Wilhelm Museum. It is one of the earliest Modernist poster designs, merging organic and geometric elements that seemingly bridge the worlds of Art Nouveau, Art Deco and Dutch East Indian motifs. The poster, in excellent condition, is as intriguing and beautiful today as it was when it was printed.
