    Description

    Italia (Graf. Coen and C Milan, 1935) Travel Poster (24.5" X 39.5") Italia, famed Italian promotional travel poster by AM Cassandre (pseudonym of Adolphe Mouron) 1901-1968. Issued by the Italian tourist board and the Italian railway system, the poster was printed by Graf Coen of Milan. The artist, Cassandre's most famous work was the poster for the maiden voyage of the ocean liner Normandie, the image of its bow slicing through the ocean. He also did a series of major posters for the French railway system including the often reproduced Etoile du Nord. Shortly after creating the sports themed poster offered here, Cassandre moved to the United States, where he designed several covers for Fortune magazine and did a noted series of ads for Container Corporation of America. In 1939 he changed disciplines and became a stage, set and theatrical designer. There are several editions of this poster, but this is the earliest. Later ones were restrikes of the original design with different texts. Fine/Very Fine condition on Linen.
