"Haberle's Silvaplana, the Ideal Underwear"
Wennerberg was a painter, graphic designer and illustrator, having studied in Stockholm and Copenhagen before settling in Munich. He produced works for several magazines, including several drawings for Simplicissimus.
“Wennerberg was by no means bohemian. He painted the noble world, extolled the beauty of youth, the erotic and the innocent, enjoyed it and yet was far from succumbing to it. And "anyone who looks nice and comes near me is mercilessly "abused" (because painting is no fun and everyone likes to put up with it, so I don't spend a lot on model money a year." A colleague once expressed his full respect : "You know, one could marry any of your models on the spot." One can shine with sons, but he could paint his daughters. His daughters often posed as models - they created his own "Wennerberg type" and made him famous. The importance of the male companions in the picture is left to the viewer. Most of the time they only look like accessories to beautiful women. He became so successful that in 1921 the Eysler & Co. publishing house in Berlin published the "Wennerberg album", an illustrated book with his models.” (
