This limited edition large format giclée print of Richard Docker’s striking Art Deco Luz Department Store in Stuttgart, Germany is made from a photographic plate that appeared in “L’art international d’aujourd‘hui, boutiques et magasins, no. 8”, a rare portfolio documenting the European Arts Decoratifs from 1920-1937. The original photograph is either in a private collection or was destroyed in WW II.

The building was destroyed in 1927. Richard Docker was a prominent modernist architect of the time, holding many government and academic positions in Germany. In 1926 he joined "The Ring", a society of prominent architects in Berlin that included Walter Gropius, Erich Mendelsohn, Ludwig Mies van der Rohe, Adolf Meyer, Bernhard Pankok, Otto Haesler and others. The goal of the members was to fight against the conservative architecture policies of the city.
