Condition B+: restored losses in corners; repaired tears, creases and restoration in margins and image; horizontal fold. Silkscreened airplane decal in image. Mounted on paper. Von Arenburg is best-known for his series of vibrant travel posters advertising travel via Clipper with Pan American World Airways. His distinctive style remains consistent throughout his designs for destinations such as Mexico, the Caribbean, Hawaii, Alaska, and, as in this case, America as a whole. He certainly captures the essence of some of the country's most recognizable assets - the New York City Skyline, Native American culture, Monument Valley, and the great Redwoods of Northern California in the foreground. Some of his other posters exhibit the same trope of using cloud-like figures in the sky to add further identifying elements to the advertised region. Also pictured is a Boeing 377 Stratocruiser, which was in use from 1949 to 1963. previously unrecorded at auction. rare.
