A unique feature of this series is the biography of the artist printed on the verso of the paper, with this poster highlighting the achievements of Ernest Fiene, whose works were acquired by numerous museums as well as private collectors like the Rockefeller family, Gertrude Vanderbilt Whitney, among many others. An unrestored poster with good color and an overall very presentable appearance. It may have slight edge wear, light creases, minor tears, mild surface rippling, and/or staining. There is soiling on the verso.
