“Youth Style”: Austrian and German Posters
from the Merrill C. Berman Collection
Featuring more than 45 posters for subjects ranging from contemporary art exhibitions and cabaret performances to car shows, shoes, cigarettes and more, “Youth Style” focuses on Austrian and German posters between roughly 1895 and 1918 drawn from the collection of Merrill C. Berman.
New York Times critic Will Heinrich lauds these Jugendstil posters for their “buoyant geometry,” “melodrama” and “contemporary zip”. Public viewing of the exhibition, which was originally scheduled to open at the gallery on March 18, 2020, was postponed due to the COVID-19 outbreak. This dedicated exhibition site offers an all-encompassing look at the varied and evolving aesthetics of the Jugendstil period from anywhere, at anytime.
