Description: MUNETSUGU SATOMI (1900-1995) JAPAN. 1937.
35x29 inches, 89x74 cm. Seihan Printing Co., Osaka.
Condition A / A-: minor discoloration along lower left margin; minor repaired tears in margins.
For the Japanese Tourist Board, Satomi creates a strong impression of the view from a speeding train--impressively fast, yet enormously beautiful. "Even the telephone poles are dominated by the train's powerful wake" (Art Deco Graphics p. 56). The image manages to compliment both Japanese technical prowess and the glory of the countryside at the same time. Voyage p. 51, Reclame 83, Affiches Art Deco 85, Art Deco Graphics p. 56.
