EDWARD VINCENT BREWER (1883-1971)
YELLOWSTONE PARK / OLD FAITHFUL / NORTHERN PACIFIC. Circa 1930.

"An impressionistic, spectral view of the Old Faithful Geyser" (Zega p. 83) created in the same soft, watercolor style of this artist's only other known poster, also for the Northern Pacific, promoting a Rodeo Parade in the Montana-Wyoming Dude Ranch country. A Minnesota native, Brewer is best known for his advertising illustration work for Cream of Wheat, but he was also an active muralist and a prominent portrait painter.
