Large framed period chromolithograph of the well-known portrait of Hermann Goering painted by Willi Exner in 1936. This example matches prints that were usually hung in government offices throughout the Third Reich instead of priceless originals. The mechanical reproduction is of high quality as would be expected for the public display of the Reichsmarschall. The size of this print is 19.25 x 27 inches sight, the frame dimensions are 22 x 30 inches. It appears to be printed on a fabric substrate and mounted onto fiberboard, the surface has a distinct canvas-like pattern, the back bears an illegible property stamp. There is some loss and scratches to the face of the print. The frame is a basic black wood frame with loss and damage. Very good portrait of Goering.
