Opel Automobiles Poster/Pictorial Modernism

I really enjoy the way this poster portrays Opel. Its a great piece of artistry. The O dominates the left portion of the poster breaking up all the blue. The driver is definitely something of the past. One would never see a person dressed as this gentlemen is portrayed. Only affluent , upper class or professional individuals can own this vehicle is what Erdt is wanting to reflect in this piece. It could mean something completely different, maybe the guy is a pilot but likes Opel automobiles. It kind of reminds me of the old sea-fairing painting i used to see. The poster looks like it has a texture to it, if so it helps bring out the face of the driver, makes it a bit more realistic. In all, its a pretty unique poster, it is definitely a poster i would hang on my hall.
