General Note: As exhibited in "Pioneers of Modern Graphic Design", October 16, 1997-April 30, 1998: Poster, Tentoonstelling van Nederlandsche Gemeente Werken te Utrecht (Exhibition of Dutch Municipal Works in Utrect), 1926 / Designed by Antonius Kurvers (Dutch, 1889-1940) / Printed by Van Leer, Amsterdam / Commecial color lithograph / TD1990.340.137 / This poster is characterized by a vertical format, densely packed sans-serif letters composed from printer's elements (lines, bars, rules), and an asymmetrical page layout. Kurvers, a follower of H.T. Wijdeveld, the founder and designer of the journal Wendingen, worked in a typographical style known variously as the Amsterdam School, Amsterdam Expressionism or, most appropriately, the Wendingen style. The poster's beautiful modulations of color and solid forms reflect Amsterdam School brick architecture. // Poster / Tentoostelling van Nederlandsche Gemeente Werken te Utrecht (Exhibition of Dutch Municipal Works in Utrecht), 1926 / Designed by Antonius Kurvers (Dutch, 1889-1940) / Printed by Van Leer, Amsterdam / Commercial color lithograph / 39 1/8 x 31 3/8 inches (99.4 x 79.7 centimeters) / Credit: The Wolfsonian-Florida International University, Miami Beach, Florida, The Mitchell Wolfson, Jr. Collection / TD1990.340.137.
