ALBERT STAEHLE (1899-1974)

New York World's Fair.
Color lithograph poster, unbacked. 762x508 mm, 30x20 inches. Grinnell Litho. Co., Inc., New York. 1939.

Staehle was a popular American illustrator and billboard artist during the mid-20th century, studying art in both Detroit and New York. Here an official "girl guide" to the New York World's Fair, identifiable by the red patch on her arm, is waving "potential fairgoers into the fair" (World of Tomorrow p. 218).

This is the larger format.

World of Tomorrow cover and p. 218.
