This piece was commissioned as a going-away gift for a client. It is a collage portrait comprised of various things—ticket stubs, a Winston Churchill quote, his house number, etc.—that are meaningful to him.
This poster uses a rough watercolor portrait, the playwright's handwriting, and bold brush strokes to convey the complexity and rawness of Bertolt Brecht's life and work. Harp and Company was one of two design firms in the United States (the other was Milton Glaser), and 65 worldwide, invited by the Berliner Ensemble to design a poster for “100 Posters for the 100th Birthday of Bertolt Brecht." The posters were displayed at an international exhibition in Berlin.
