About this poster
This dynamic poster for the new class of express ocean liners represents the best in Art Deco design. We seem to be looking straight up at an imposing streamlined ship with its funnel rising above New York skyscrapers in the distance. Art Deco coincided with a broad increase in travel by rail, car, and steamship. As a result, many of the travel posters of the era were executed in a sleek modern style. This poster marks an important moment in the history of the Cosulich Line: in 1933 its new liner Rex broke the record for the fastest crossing of the Atlantic (only to be surpassed in 1935 by the Normandie).
