    Art Deco genre WWII ad featuring Mercedes-Benz products. A good example of how art can be an influence on its viewers.

    I present this solely for artistic appreciation.

      This is awesome imagery!!

      Thomas.

      Yes, Thomas, I thought so, too. The power of art is immeasurable. obviously, this is a German production, but all sides used such technique to bolster morale on "the home front".

      Comparison of such means to win the "hearts and minds" of the citizens of the Nations involved would make for a lively discussion, I am sure.....

      Thank you, Thomas, for your love of, and the insightful comment that you had presented re: this image.

      Ted, is this ad to show that Mercedes Benz was involved in the production of Luftwaffe planes during WW2, the poster art is quite good

      This is amazing- I love the whole Art Deco period and this is so sleek!
    6. Ted_Straub Ted_Straub, 1 year ago
      Yes, Jenni....MB also made engines for ground vehicles.

      And true, the ad is powerfully impressive!

      Thank you, Lauren for the love and for your comment. The Art Deco genre is my favorite. I try to seek out as much of it as I can.

      And, yes, this ad is a great example of that movement.....

      It has the perfect perspective to capture the imagery.
    9. Watchsearcher Watchsearcher, 1 year ago
      It certainly would get the message across to inspire a sense of supreme power of the Germans and instill a sense of fear in those the military is coming for.

      I think I see Indiana Jones under one of the cars.
