    Description

    Tasmania the Wonderland Travel Poster (South Australian Tourist Bureau, 1926). Poster (25" X 40").
    Illustrator Harry Garnet Kelly (1896-1967) was commissioned by the State Tourist Advisory Board to create scenes of Tasmania that would entice visitors to attend the "Back to Tasmania Carnival" in November of 1926. Kelly employed a rich purple and gold palette to depict the Du Cane Range, with Lake Marion in the foreground, a powerful image with bold blocks of color. The carnival turned out to be one of the most successful tourism campaigns in the state's history. This rare, original travel poster has never been folded, and is in pristine condition. Very Fine+ on Linen.
