    Description

    Travel by Greyhound (Greyhound, 1960s). Full-Bleed Travel Poster (28" X 38.5") "Winter Bewitches," Rod Ruth Artwork.
    Raised near Lake Michigan, artist Rod Ruth's childhood engrained in him a lifelong love for the beauty found in nature and wildlife. He began his career as an illustrator for several Chicago-based magazines, and further honed his skills over the next several decades in the field of advertising and children's books. Known for drawing the comic strip The Toodles from 1941-1958 and painting travel posters for Greyhound, he is perhaps most famous for his work on the 1972 book Album of Dinosaurs. This original Greyhound poster from the 1960s was an excellent vehicle for his talents, with twinkling snowflakes fluttering around a sylphic ice skater as she etches her way through a dreamy winterscape. Touchup has been applied only to pinholes in the corners. The lower corners are beginning to lift from the masa paper. Fine/Very Fine on Linen.


    Estimate: $600 - $1,200.
