        ARTIST: SASCHA MAURER (1897-1961) SIZE: 27 5/8 x 41 3/8 in./70 x 105 cm PRINTER: Plampin Litho. DESCRIPTION: In its heyday, the New York, New Haven, & Hartford Railroad's main line sizzled with famous trains shuttling tycoons and business leaders between Boston's South Station and New York City's Grand Central Terminal. In the 1930s, the New Haven ordered a fleet of steam locomotives of the Hudson type (four lead wheels, six drivers, and four trailing wheels). These massive engines took advantage of the latest in steam technology, providing increased tractive effort and horsepower for more rapid acceleration and faster speed. Not that any of this would have mattered to this courteously overjoyed lad making his way towards the slopes, but he certainly would have appreciated the fairly instant gratification the fleet provided.

        Est: $2,500 - $3,500

        SASCHA MAURER (1897-1961) NEW YORK WORLD'S FAIR / THRU GRAND CENTRAL GATEWAY. Circa 1939. 41 1/2x27 inches, 105 1/2x68 1/2 cm. Kelly, Nason, Inc., New York. Condition B / B-: large stain in lower left image and text; losses, extensive flaking, repaired tears and creases at edges, into image; extensive creases and abrasions in image and along vertical and horizontal folds. Mounted on old linen. A painter who emigrated from Germany, Maurer brought the European tradition of Modernist poster design to America. Although best known for his ski posters, Maurer also did a lot of poster work for both the New Haven Railroad and the Pennsylvania Railroad. For the latter, he designed two posters promoting travel to the New York World's Fair, each with a similar bird's-eye view concept of Manhattan and the famed Trylon and Perisphere. We believe this to be his only image for the New York Central Line, featuring Grand Central Terminal and the New York Central's pride, the 20th Century Limited. Rare. This same image was used as the cover lot for Swann's inaugural Rare and Important Travel Poster auction in 1999. It has only come up for sale once at auction since.

CONTACT US SKU#: 118049 US Shipping $60 + insurance. BIOGRAPHY: Best known for his ski and travel posters from the 1930s and 1940s, Maurer was born in Germany. His father was a painter who died when Maurer was young, leaving him his watercolors and palette. Using his father's tools, Maurer began to paint in the Bavarian Alps during his vacations. He then studied art at the Munich Academy of Fine Arts and also studied independently with poster artist and watercolorist Ludwig Hohlwein. After four years in the navy during World War I, Maurer moved first to Brazil and then to the United States. He worked for a brief time for well-known poster artist Lucien Bernhard before opening his own studio, where he produced book jackets, magazine covers, advertisements, packaging, and posters. Maurer's ski and travel posters demonstrated his great love for both skiing and travel; his ski posters illustrated the glamour as well as the thrill of the sport. Maurer eventually moved to the country and earned his living creating watercolors for resort and travel advertising as well as calendars and Christmas cards. His work is found in various private and institutional collections. He received many awards for his watercolors.

        New Haven R.R. / New England. 1938.

        Est: $1,700 - $2,000

        ARTIST: SASCHA MAURER (1897-1961) SIZE: 28 x 41 7/8 in./71.2 x 106.4 cm PRINTER: Litho. Co., Long Island City, NY DESCRIPTION: "In practice, the travel poster proved an elusive medium that few artists mastered. Maurer's work for the New Haven Railroad placed him among that select group. He characterized the poster as a speed medium, where first impressions were everything. 'Few colors, vivid, attention-compelling; striking, well-disposed composition, short and smashing copy.' These, he argued, 'are the attributes that make a poster successful’" (Travel by Train, xi). Indeed, this summery design transposes the coastline onto the face of the train, creating a high-contrast, high-fun incentive to visit New England. (Art Deco; Travel; Railway; American)

        ARTIST: SASCHA MAURER (1897-1961) SIZE: 27 5/8 x 41 3/8 in./70 x 105 cm PRINTER: Plampin Litho. DESCRIPTION: In its heyday, the New York, New Haven, & Hartford Railroad's main line sizzled with famous trains shuttling tycoons and business leaders between Boston's South Station and New York City's Grand Central Terminal. In the 1930s, the New Haven ordered a fleet of steam locomotives of the Hudson type (four lead wheels, six drivers, and four trailing wheels). These massive engines took advantage of the latest in steam technology, providing increased tractive effort and horsepower for more rapid acceleration and faster speed. Not that any of this would have mattered to this courteously overjoyed lad making his way towards the slopes, but he certainly would have appreciated the fairly instant gratification the fleet provided.

Maurer was best known for a series of posters he created for the New Haven Railroad and other New England clients. (Modern; Winter Sports; Ski; Travel; American)

        ARTIST: SASCHA MAURER (1897-1961) SIZE: 21 1/4 x 37 1/4 in./54 x 94.7 cm PRINTER: DESCRIPTION: Maurer once again advertises the New York ski resort of Snowhaven with a grinning blonde hitting the slopes; she was so endearing that she was used for various wintry destinations. Very little information exists on this resort, leading us to believe that these posters are about the only evidence of its previous existence.
