Description

    Cunard-White Star RMS Queen Mary Travel Poster (c.1936). Full-Bleed Poster (25" X 40").
    The British shipping company, White Star Line, is most known for its cutting edge vessel Oceanic of 1870, the disastrousRMS Titanic, and the World War I loss of the shipBritannic. In 1934, the company merged with its chief rival, the Cunard Line. Cunard-White Star Line, Ltd. existed until 1950, when Cunard began operating independently. Today, the company is best recognized for its ships Queen Mary 2, Queen Victoria,and Queen Elizabeth. Artist William Howard Jarvis (1903-1964) was recognized by the early 1930s for his seascapes and maritime settings, and was commissioned to create this stone litho poster of the grand RMS Queen Mary, that from 1936 to 1967 sailed between England and New York as part of Cunard's weekly express service. Upon its retirement, the ship was purchased by the city of Long Beach, California and is docked there, serving as a floating hotel and museum. Originals of this poster are extremely scarce, and finding one in top condition is even more challenging. Light touchup was applied to a chip at the bottom left and creases in the bottom section. Printer: British Colour Printing Co., Ltd. London & Liverpool. Very Fine- on Linen.
