Description: ODIN ROSENVINGE (1880-1957) ARGENTINA (SUNNY SOUTH) AND BRAZIL. Circa 1910.
33 1/4x20 inches, 84 1/2x50 3/4 cm. Turner & Dunnett, Liverpool.
Condition A.
Rosenvinge was a prolific designer of posters for various shipping companies, including the Royal Line, Anchor Donaldson Line, Allan Line, Elder Dempster Line, Orient Line and the Union Castle Line (see lot 25), but his largest client was Cunard Line. His connection to the maritime world came through his primary employer in the shipping center of Liverpool, the printer Turner and Dunnett. He was also a prolific designer of maritime and liner postcards. Advertising here, the Nelson Line was founded in 1880 and began carrying passengers in 1910, a decision which was quickly followed by its merger with Royal Mail Steam Packet Co. in 1913. Here, the artist delivers one of his most allegorical images, advertising sailings to the River Plate in Argentina. With the Basilica of Notre Dame de Boulogne in the gray foreground, a vessel heads toward a woman pulling aside a gossamer curtain to reveal a warm and sunny South American vista. This is the German version.
