The original set of six full-color 6 x 8-1/4 inch prints made from watercolors painted in France during World War II by Wehrmacht Gefreiter G. Schmitz and sold to troops of the German occupation in France during the Third Reich are now very rare. The six prints came in a typical European art folio titled Oh-la-la...! published by Europa-Edition of Paris and sold for 1 Reichsmark or 20 French Francs.
The six prints are Oh-la-la! (a German guard leering at a beautiful French maid on her way home from the market with eggs and bread) Sans Ticket (two German soldiers admiring a tiny French bra) Je ne comprends pas (a German soldier making a pass at a sweet young French girl) Grand filou (a German Landser with beer making conversation with a lovely French maid) and two untitled prints - both showing Wehrmacht soldiers in goodbye embraces kissing beautiful French girls.
Starting with an original set of the Schmitz prints we had them digitized and cleaned up so that we could print out sets that could be sold at a reasonable price. Rather than printing them in the relatively small original size, we had the prints centered on standard 8-1/2 x 11 inch 80 pound matt finish American archival art paper. That way, those who wish can have one or more prints matted and framed, or simply save them as a folio. Each set of six different prints comes with a separate printed cover similar to the one used in France when the sets were sold there during World War II.
All six prints and the cover (7 sheets total) are offered for sale
