About

Original vintage travel advertising poster - Fly TWA Italy - featuring a beautiful image by the American artist David Klein (1918-2005) of a view over St Mark's Square in Venice with birds flying around the historic San Marco tower, a Lockheed Constellation ‘Connie’ plane flying overhead and the stylized lettering in red below. David Klein (1918-2005) worked as an Art Director on Madison Avenue in New York and produced some of the most iconic travel images of the post war era. Trans World Airlines (TWA) was a major American airline from 1924-2001, when it was acquired by American Airlines. Howard Hughes joined TWA in 1939 and is credited as the driving force behind the development of the Lockheed Constellation airplane shown in this poster. This vintage poster is sized 25 x 40 inches and has been professionally linen-backed ready for framing. Will be sent rolled.
