PERCY TROMPF (1902-1964) AUSTRALIA / MILLION - PEOPLED CITIES AND A EUROPEAN ENVIRONMENT! Circa 1935.
39 3/4x24 3/4 inches, 101x63 cm. Troedel & Cooper, Melbourne.
Condition A-: minor tears and restoration in margins.
A refined and elegant image of couples dancing on an outdoor terrace in Miller's Point beneath the stars and the twinkling lights of the newly constructed Sydney Harbor Bridge (opened in 1932) and the city itself on the other side of the harbor. Clearly aimed at European and American travellers the image encapsulates the notion that Sydney is a sophisticated and modern city along the lines of New York, London or Paris. We have been unable to locate another copy of this poster at auction or in any institutional collection. rare
