Max Ehrmann art prints and posters

Max Ehrmann was a prolific poet, but today he is remembered mostly for the life advice found in his 1927 prose poem "Desiderata."
Ehrmann was born in 1872 to immigrants from Bavaria. He spent most of his life in Terre Haute, Indiana, working as an attorney and later as a full-time poet. He died in 1945 and was interred in Highland Lawn Cemetery in Terre Haute.
In 2010 the city honored Ehrmann with a life-size statue in a small plaza themed around his most famous poem.
