This is a highly collectable German ‘Jung Koch Quentell’ wall chart dating from 1965. ‘Jung Koch Quentell’ were the last names of three scientists who designed educational coloured charts for the German Publishing Company, Hagemann. The charts were designed to be colourful, vivid and without text so that they could easily be used by teachers in any language. They were an international success and are now highly sought after by interior designers looking for good sized dramatic alternatives to traditional art.
The chart is printed and laid to canvas and attached to two wooden poles. When not in use, it was designed to be rolled up and secured with a wingnut attachment, as shown.
