TWA INDIA, 1960. Original Vintage TWA Airline Travel Poster (25 x 40” / 82 x 131 cm) designed and illustrated by David Klein. This poster is from the many that Klein designed during the 1950’s and 1960’s for Howard Hughes Trans World Airlines (TWA). This illustration is a stunning example of the bright and saturated patterns that are apart of India’s culture. The main image is of an elephant painted with these patterns, draped in printed fabric with traditional ornamental embellishments and jewelry of the region. The artist uses intense colors of reds, oranges and pinks with a contrast of exotic blues and greens for a very beautiful psychedelic feel. “Fly TWA Jets”
This poster is originally rolled and in good C8 condition with only minor conditional issues: some horizontal creasing near bottom of poster due to being flattened when rolled, minor wrinkling throughout poster, and only minor wear along margin edges. Please click on image to zoom in and review for yourself. Otherwise, this poster is in good shape and would look absolutely stunning once Linen Backed. This process is available upon request for an additional $80 and would render the above conditional issues nearly invisible.
Condition C8. SOLD for $350
