New York, ca. 1896-1900
FROM MY POSTER COLLECTION: Fragment of a huge poster... either for a clothing store... or more likely for a Broadway play. This was a time during which the viability of commercial photography was making drastic inroads into what had long been the province of illustrators.
Many illustrators and poster designers of the day recognized that competition with the "new" medium was futile and turned more and more away from what could be termed "realistic".
Harvard-educated Eddy was famous for saying: "one picture by a real artist can tell all that a thousand feet of film can tell. Its succinctness gives it force and beauty"
A large and impressive image from a bygone era... at approximately 17 x 69"
Condition: As shown... calls for professional handling and framing.
