LESLIE RAGAN (1897-1972) WEST POINT / NEW YORK CENTRAL SYSTEM. 1952. 41x26 3/4 inches, 104x68 cm. Condition A: creases and minor restoration in margins. Leslie Ragan studied briefly at the Cumming School of Art in Des Moines and the Art Institute in Chicago. He designed posters for the United States during the Second World War, but his largest account was with the New York Central Lines. "His work exemplified the American taste for realistic depiction while highlighting the natural environment for dramatic effect . . . Ragan's sense of composition and refined wash technique made his best images burst with reflected light" (Zega p. 95).
