Original poster designed by Davif Klein for the American airline company Trans World Airlines promoting flights to Africa, circa 1960.
In the post-World War II era, TWA was a dominant force in air transportation. The economy was improving dramatically, business and leisure travel was booming, and posters like this one played a key role in promoting air travel.
This original poster is the work of the talented American artist David Klein. It represents a group of zebras in a very geometric style, whose black and white stripes contrast perfectly with the red and orange ones lively from the back. The overall composition forms a subtle alliance of contrasts and harmony in both form and colour.
Klein is best known for his influential work in advertising, but he is best remembered for the iconic travel images created for Howard Hughes and TWA in the 1950s and 1960s. These include the incredible poster on the New YorkThe exhibition, now on display at WOAgri, is also available on www.posterissim.com.
