R. Barnick Artistic Lithography was a Berlin printing firm that had been in existence since about 1875. It produced lithographic posters, labels for bottles, and an array of graphic ephemera. Since the printing house was located in Berlin's eastern sector, after World War II, the location of R. Barnik Artistic Lithography shifted to East Germany.
