Wednesday’s ad is for Dortmunder Ritter Bier, from 1952. From the late 1800s until the 1980s, poster art really came into its own, and in Europe a lot of really cool posters, many of them for breweries, were produced. I’ve been posting vintage European posters all last year and will continue to do so in 2020. This poster was created for Dortmunder Ritter-Brauerei, which was located in Dortmund, which is in northwestern Germany, though more central. It was founded in 1889 and closed in 2005. This poster was created by German artist Helga Tiemann.
