Sale 2459 Lot 159
PAUL COLIN (1892-1986) TWA / TRANS WORLD AIRLINE. Circa 1950.
39 1/4x24 1/2 inches, 99 3/4x62 1/4 cm. Bedos & Cie, Paris.
Condition A: minor repaired tears at edges.
Colin created images for the plays, balls and music halls of Paris throughout the 1920s, when his work became synonymous with the city's cultural scene at the time. This is a rare piece for the artist in that it is a travel poster for an American airline. Here, Colin scales back his signature Art Deco style in favor of a simpler aesthetic, showing a TWA Constellation circling the globe, half of which is covered in night's shadow. Not in Colin.
