More About this Item

Description: Artist: DAVID KLEIN (1918-2005) Size: 25 1/8 x 39 7/8 in./64 x 101.2 cm Klein is best remembered for the dozens of destination advertisements he created for Trans World Airlines during the 1950s and ‘60s. Most of this poster output depicts famous landmarks in the abstract, a style that is widely attributed to his early work in watercolor. This poster, however, is a bit of a departure from that, using bold squares of color and speckled star bursts to represent New York's Times Square. It is without a doubt the most celebrated image in his series for TWA. (nyc, aviation, travel )
