Sold on LiveAuctioneers

POSTER. ESPERT. SEE BOULDER DAM ENROUTE TO CAL

Lot 2031052 Details

Description
ESPERT. SEE BOULDER DAM ENROUTE TO CALIFORNIA. Circa 1936.
41x25 1/2 inches.
Condition B+: repaired tears in margins, some affecting image; restored losses in margins.
A photomontage of America's most famous dam taken "at dedication ceremonies Sept 30, 1935". Completed in 1936, the dam, spanning Boulder Canyon, was called the Boulder Dam until 1947 when Congress passed a resolution renaming the dam after President Herbert Hoover. Both compositionally and typographically, this poster is more in keeping with avant-garde posters of Europe during the 1930s than with the prevailing illustrative trends in America.

All items are offered for sale subject to Swann Galleries' standard terms and conditions of sale, which are published in our catalogues and are posted below.
