More About this Item


Description: 39x27 inches.
Condition B: replaced left and right margins; restored losses in margins; minor creases in image.
A ship is set out on a course cleverly depicted as across the horizon and around the globe, her route is a line of flags comprising countries along the coast of the Adriatic Sea and the Mediterranean. Based in Venice and accessing "all of the eastern Mediterranean," here the Adriatica line uses singularly Cassandre-esque graphique design to promote itself.
