H A Rothholz 1919 - 2000

HA Rothholz came to Britain in 1933 and studied at the Reimann School.

His career in design was interrupted, during WW2, by his internment as an enemy alien.

Despite these difficulties, Rothholz returned to Britain and established himself a poster designer

and commercial artist.

 

Rothholz was a part of a generation of designers who transformed the visual culture of

advertising and communication in Britain after WW2. He was a friend and

colleague of Abram Games, Tom Eckersley and George Him.

 

Amongst his clients were the GPO (General Post Office) and RoSPA (Royal Society for the

Prevention of Accidents).

The posters shown below range in date from the mid 1940's to early 1950's and are design classics

of the period. They are in superb condition and only one or two copies of each are available to purchase.

Where we know the exact date, this is mentioned below each image.

Please contact Paul and Karen Rennie to purchase and check availability.
