Description: LESLIE RAGAN (1897-1972) THE NEW 20TH CENTURY LIMITED. 1939.
40 3/4x27 inches, 103 1/2x68 1/2 cm. Latham Litho Co., Long Island City.
Condition A- / B+: repaired tears and creases in margins and text. Mounted on Japan.
A powerful Art Deco image of one of the last century's most famous American trains. In the 1930s, technology began to reflect the sleek, aerodynamic lines of the Art Deco movement, and the new 20th Century Limited, designed by Henry Dreyfuss, was the pride of the New York Central Line, which ran from New York to Chicago. This image has been featured by the United States Postal Service on a series of stamps commemorating the 1930s and is among the top American Art Deco posters ever designed. Zega 152, Encyclopedie de l'Affiche p. 209, Crouse p. 263, Affiches Chemin de Fer p. 107, Affiche Art Deco p. 87.
