The powerful stylized Eagle against the stark city background shows the design brilliance of Schulpig. A pioneer of modern German Design.
The Kölnische Zeitung was one of the leading national German daily newspapers in the 19th century and in the 20th century until the beginning of National Socialism. 

"A painter and a poster designer, Schulpig was very active in Berlin. In 1905, when Lucian Bernhard invented the Object Poster, with his seminal image for Priester matches, he could not have foreseen how much his new style would influence an entire generation of poster artists." (Swann)
