Australia / Great Barrier Coral Reef. ca. 1932.

Lot 149: Australia / Great Barrier Coral Reef. ca. 1932.

Auction Date: Nov 14, 2021

Estimate: $2,000 - $2,500

Description: ARTIST: JAMES NORTHFIELD (1887-1973) SIZE: 24 3/4 x 39 3/4 in./63 x 101 cm PRINTER: J. E. Hackett, Melbourne DESCRIPTION: The Great Barrier Reef, off Australia's east coast, is widely acclaimed as one of the world’s great natural treasures. Currently, more than two million people visit the reef each year. That number was obviously not as elevated when Northfield angled to draw a few more outdoor sportsmen to the area with this action poster, featuring both above and underwater lures. With the multitude of fish in the Barrier Reef region, it’s easy to see why it would be promotionally touted as a fisherman’s paradise. And though sport fishing is still a major attraction, the contemporary realities of conservation have required that various parts of reef are protected with restricted fishing. Even with its various environmental challenges, the Great Barrier Reef retains its environment of extraordinary beauty and richness, with a diversity of plant, animal, and sea life that makes it an essential part of Australia's natural heritage.

Auction Date: Nov 14, 2019

Estimate: $4,000 - $6,000

Description: JAMES NORTHFIELD (1887-1973) WATTLE TIME / TRAVEL BY TRAIN. Circa 1925.
40 1/4x25 1/4 inches, 102 1/4x64 cm. Syd Day Ltd., Sydney.
Condition A-: repaired tears and minor abrasions in margins.
"Northfield was one of Australia's most successful and well-known commercial artists between the early 1920s and the late 1950s . . . Northfield's training as a colour lithographer, his excellent sense of design and an ability to understand and appeal to his audience enabled him to prosper from the extraordinary growth in advertising experienced in Australia after World War I" (Northfield p. 1). The golden wattle (Acacia Pycnantha), Australia's national flower, grows on trees and can reach heights of over 25 feet tall. Since 1899, Wattle Day has been held on September 1, the first day of Australian Spring. The flower, which appears on the country's coat of arms, is very much a part of the Australian psyche. This rare early poster, "Vic Rlwys Poster No. 39," is previously unrecorded. We could find no other auction records.

Australia / Great Barrier Reef. ca. 1930.

Lot 416: Australia / Great Barrier Reef. ca. 1930.

Auction Date: Oct 27, 2019

Estimate: $1,200 - $1,500

Description: ARTIST: JAMES NORTHFIELD (1887-1973) SIZE: 25 1/8 x 39 3/4 in./63.8 x 101 cm PRINTER: McLarens, Melbourne DESCRIPTION: The Great Barrier Reef, off Australia's east coast, is widely acclaimed as one of the world’s great natural treasures. Currently, more than two-million people visit the reef each year—although that number was surely lower in the 1930s, which prompted Northfield's lush and ethereal underwater scene. The Reef continues to be the world's largest reef system; it's greater in size than the United Kingdom, Holland, and Switzerland combined. But after experiencing two massive coral bleaching events in 1998 and 2002, the fate of this ecosystem is quite grim. Northfield's design, however, provides a small but necessary reminder of the importance of maintaining this extraordinary and diverse environment. (Art Deco; Travel; Animals)...

Condition B+: repaired tears at edges, some slightly into border; minor creases and staining in margins; light offsetting in upper image.
James Northfield and Percy Trompf were Australia's most popular and prolific poster designers. They each designed an image promoting the Trans-Australian Railway. Here, the train speeds past a man on a camel - previously the quickest way across the vast swaths of land between Australia's coasts. To show just how far the train travels, Northfield depicts the continent, almost cloud-like, in the background. The map serves as a stark white backdrop for the boldly-colored image (to distinguish it from just appearing like a cloud, Northfield has added three cities to the map). Trading Places 17, Northfield p. 132.
