Vintage Waschanstalt/Zurich Men's Fashion

This is a rare vintage men's fashion shirt advertisement for Waschanstalt Zurich Dress Shirts by Robert Hardmeyer. 1905 Rooster struts his stuff. This phenomenally surreal image for a Zurich laundry service trots out a rooster who has decided to paint the town red, and wanting something a little special to impress the chicks, has borrowed a freshly-laundered, gleaming tuxedo shirt and marching walking stick from the farmhouse in order to really strut his stuff. A unique vision certainly worth crowing about. Hardmeyer, a Swiss painter, illustrator and poster artist, looked at his poster work, most notably for the Zurich wine merchant J. Diener, merely as a way to make a living. Though he viewed his graphic career as a way to support his preferred passion of illustrating Clarner schoolbooks and childrens books, of which he even wrote a few, his select body of work sets him apart as one of the pioneers of the art of the poster.

The quick frame option comes ready to hang and framed as shown, with acrylic glass and a solid wood black frame, no mats.
