1939 New York World's Fair Poster - Howard Scott

The New York World's Fair of 1939 came about at the end of the Great Depression. Despite ominous rumblings in Europe, most Americans believed they had put the worst of the decade behind them. Howard Scott's 1940 New York World's Fair poster illustrates the pride and optimism the fair represented. The poster, mounted on linen, measures 20" x 30", the linen backing is 22.5" x 32.5". ©N.Y.W.F. Restored and mounted on linen. Evidence of tears, folds, edge roughness. An uncommon and good-looking piece. (Stock number 003wfposter2) SOLD
