    Description

    United Airlines: Los Angeles (United Airlines, 1960s). Rolled, Very Fine/Near Mint. Full-Bleed Travel Poster (25" X 40") Stanley Walter Galli Artwork.
    Appearing for the first time at Heritage is this wonderful travel poster by artist Stan Galli (1912-2009). In an interview with the artist recorded in 2002, when asked about the famous California light and how it affected his use of color, Galli stated, "I never paid much attention to that. I had to make things realistic for advertising, and so you use the colors that, you know, would accentuate the story you are trying to tell. For instance, I worked for United Airlines and I made a California poster, and I made it all yellow! Then the head of the United Airlines called me up and said, 'My God, the sky is yellow! It's blue!' I said, 'That signifies warmth,' and he accepted that" This lovely poster shows only light edge wear and a very minor tear at the bottom edge.
