Georg Ritzer 1Beer stein dedicated to the 16th National Day of the German Cycling Federation in Munich, 1899. The stein graphic was designed by Georg Ritzer, on a 1 litre Mass by Reinhold Merkelbach. Ritzer concentrated on the Munich Kindl essentially reducing it to its outlines. He is therefore at the beginning of a series of artists who, at the beginning of the 20th century, were leaving behind the previous generation and began to treat the Munich Kindl in graphically clear, fresh designs.
