Description: BERN HILL (1911-1977) SEE MORE ON THE VISTA DOME / CALIFORNIA ZEPHYR. Circa 1950s.
23 3/4x18 inches, 60 1/4x45 3/4 cm.
Condition A.
Between 1950 and 1956, Hill created sixty-five paintings for General Motor's campaign. "Electro-Motive also produced a series of very high-grade posters of Hill's paintings that were overwritten by the marketing theme for that particular railroad . . . it is unknown if all 65 paintings were turned into posters. . . . Hill's assignment was to portray the 'feel' of each railroad in a scene that often captured the landscape of the individual road and gave the viewer the sense of that road's missions - freight, passenger or switching" (Railroad Heritage, No. 6, 2002, p. 10). Zega p. 131.
