Ludwig Hohlwein (1874 - 1949) was a German poster artist, a pioneer of the Sachplakat style. He went to the United States to work in the 1920's and by 1925 had already designed 3000 different advertisments. During the second world war he worked for the Nazi party's Ministry of Propoganda and Enlightenment producing posters of which author Scott Boylston has said, " Hohlwein posters for the Nazi party are the most dramatic examples of National Socialist realism"
