    Description

    New York World's Fair 1939 Travel Poster (Grinnell Litho. Co., 1939). Poster (20" X 30") Joseph Binder Artwork.
    Austrian lithographer Joseph Binder originally came to the USA in 1933 as a teacher, but soon began making stylized posters influenced by the De Stijl and Cubism movements. He went on to win many international awards, and created this very future-forward poster for the New York World's Fair in 1939 featuring the famous Trylon and Perisphere. The theme of the fair was "Building The World of Tomorrow," espousing one of the last great ideals of the Machine Age, that science and technology were the vehicles for economic abundance and personal liberty. This message of hope for a better tomorrow struck a chord with fair-goers weary from the ravages of the first World War and the Great Depression. The poster shows some light edge wear, slight creases, and a mild tear from the lower right edge slightly into the image area. Rolled, Very Fine.


    Estimate: $1,200 - $2,400.
