Adding to our ever changing collection of Vintage Posters, we are now stocking some beautiful anatomical wall charts.
The German Hagemann Company was established by three men; a doctor, an artist and a teacher. The three saw a need for quality educational tools in the classroom and set forth to create superior series of charts illustrating flowers, plants, animals and the human body. Each man possessing his own set of talents, the combination produced reference material the likes of which had not been seen before and has not been replicated since. Text was never printed on the charts – this way the material maintained its universal accessibility and could be used throughout Europe as a teaching aid. The lack of text also enhances their ability to be recognized as “objects de art”.
