The World of soaps and fragrances
Poster Exhibition. Photo Burghalde Museum Lenzburg
The exhibition in the old soap factory in Lenzburg presents the fascinating world of soaps and fragrances. The industrial posters by Persil, Sunlight, Steinfels & Co. are graphic masterpieces of the last 125 years. High-quality toilet soaps and washing powder were produced in Lenzburg for just over a hundred years. The history of the soap factory founded in 1857 is also discussed. The Icon Museum shows the sacred aspect of purity, in particular the contrast between Russian sacred images and the industrial steel sculptures of James Licini (1937).
