Rathauskeller, printed around the turn of the century, is a beautiful wine poster done in the now-rare Arts and Crafts style, a look that emerged mostly out of Northern Europe and quickly flourished into the well-known French Art Nouveau style. Arts and Crafts usually featured weighted, natural colors, chunky lines, and more masculine-based features. In addition to having these tell-tale signs, Rathauskeller also has a very interesting historical spin. During the time this piece was printed, the company’s location, Bozen, was a town in Southern Austria. Less than two decades later as World War I was coming to a close, Bozen (or now ‘Bolzano’)was land granted by the Triple Entente to Italy as a reward for declaring war on the Austro-Hungarian Empire and maintaining the northern border battle lines. The town remains Italian to this day.
