Old Art Deco ads

My friend was at the MoMA in NY, NY this past weekend and sent me a couple ads that I might just enjoy. And I did. This advertising poster by Hohlwein is from the 1912 Audi show. The colors and pattern on the chauffeur’s coat are so attractive…but what’s he doing? Listening for the quiet Audi engine?

And this is Der Neue BMW from c. 1930 by Henry Ehlers. That’s a straight on view of a tire on the left with a fender above and suspension stacked across. The little arm is the steering.
