Description: STEFAN NORBLIN (1892-1952) LWÒW. 1928.
29 1/4x19 1/2 inches, 74 1/2x49 1/2 cm. Bibljoteka Poliska, Bydgoszczy.
Condition B+: minor tears, creases and folds in margins and image. Paper.
Lwòw has had a tumultuous geo-political history. Historically a prominent Polish, Ukrainian and Jewish city, it was one of the intellectual centers of Eastern Europe. Over the centuries, it has been fought over and claimed by the Hapsburgs, Russians, Poles and Germans. Poland took control of the city in late 1920, and it was part of Poland until the beginning of the Second World War when it was retaken by the Soviets and then again by the Germans. Norblin, in a silhouette style reminiscent of posters by Ludwig Hohlwein, depicts some of the city skyline's most prominent structures: The Bernadine Cathedral and Monastery, the Clock Tower and the domes of the Assumption Dormition Church and the Dominican Church, amidst other spires and steeples. In addition to its size, architecture and cultural prominence, Lwow is now also infamous for the Jewish Ghetto established there during the Second World War, which was liquidated in June 1943. Simon Wiesenthal was one of the most prominent of the ghetto's few survivors. Polish Poster 92, Biblioteki Glownej 178, Polska Sztuka Plakatu p. 79.
