Little is known about the life and work of Walter Köhler. What we do know is that he made illustrations for the 'Meggendorfer Blätter', a humorous magazine that was at the time very popular. Its illustrations were usually made by famous artists. Köhler made this watercolour for the cover of the issue of 25 August 1921. Below one could read the following text :“Ekelhaft ist das! Die Leute hier grinsen einen immer so an, als wüssten die, dass man noch gar nicht an das viele geld gewöhnt ist. Und dabei rede ich doch extra immer recht viel vom Geld!' (“Terrible anyway. The people here are always grinning at you, as if they know that you are not used to so much money at all. While I always talk a lot about money!).
