Bon voyage!: Airplanes were among the technological marvels of the early 20th century that made pleasure travel feasible and luxurious. This newfound freedom to explore the world sparked a Golden Age of Travel and a new era began in tourism with the advent of widespread intercontinental air travel after World War II. As this explosion in pleasure travel was dawning, another new marvel, the lithographic poster, came into being - designed to capture one's attention and inspire travellers to see the world. Avalon captures this adventurous mood to perfection in his rendering of a 1930s passenger plane flying into a beautiful sunset, awakening dreams of an exquisite getaway.
