Regular price kr.199.00

A box on the way to or from a large steamer. Trade has always been international, but it was not until 1937 that the US launched their first area for foreign trade.

The poster originates from the large-scale employment project Works Progress Administration, whom during the Depression in the United States, created jobs for nearly 8 million people in the period 1935-43. Besides being behind public construction projects. The WPA also created great art and culture projects, from where I have discovered some very interesting visual material.

I have improved the reproduction as I usually do. However, only ever so slightly. Partly to make the format suitable for the current frame dimensions and so marks, holes and dirty fingerprints no longer hamper the quite beautiful motif. Additionally, also to make the colors shine more like they did back during the depression in the US. 

Printed with Japanese archival ink on a matte Hahnemühle paper in own workshop outside Copenhagen, Denmark. 

The print will be delivered protectively packed in a cardboard tube. No frame is included.

If you want a frame for the print please have a look at the frame collection
