Narentizza: An Austrian Secessionist period poster by Georg Jilovsky, circa 1910. This is an advertisement for "Narentizza Perle," a "medicinal wine" which was thought to be a remedy for anemia.
Czech born Jilovsky (1884-1958) was a landscape painter who took an interest in graphic arts during his travels to Germany and Austria in the years 1906-1915. A concentration camp survivor, the Jewish Museum in Prague honored Jilovsky's life's work with a special exhibition in 2005.
