Today the poster arrived with FedEx. Fantastic quality! I'm very pleased and will come by to your gallery when I'm in NY in January.
Mr. Ross has the one of the finest collections of international vintage posters and prints. He was most helpful working with me to select a genre of work I collect. No trip to Manhattan is complete without stopping into Mr. Ross's Gallery on Madison Avenue to see his latest offerings.

The Ross Gallery has the best selection of vintage posters I have ever seen. Seriously, if you are in the market, they are the people. And, they know everything there is to know about the posters provenance.
I recieved the poster this evening via UPS. It looks fantastic! I'm very pleased with it.
If there's anything you want to know about posters, vintage or more modern, there's nothing Mr Ross doesn't know. His open and friendly manner helps one to choose the most suitable material whether for decoration, investment or whatever... I can't recommend him highly enough.
Mickey - We received the posters today and they are absolutely fantastic. Thanks again.
Really great service from start to finish. Shipping to the UK was not a problem and Mickey and his team gave me all the information I needed. Really happy with the poster too. A great addition to my living room wall. Thanks Again.
It was great meeting with you as well. I had a lot of choices of poster stores to visit while in New York, some less expensive, but I chose to only visit The Ross Art Group due to the level of service that I received initially and the quality of the posters. I really appreciate your communication and follow-up! I will recommend The Ross Art Group to anyone that will be looking for posters....
MAITRES DE L'AFFICHE - PL 32 THE JULY CENTURY
11.5” x 15.5”
This image was an integral part of the Maitres de L’Affiche series of posters created for a subscription audience in the late 1890’s. It showcased the most influential posters of the era in a collectible small format.
This particular image was created by the American artist Charles Woodbury for the publication The July Century. The clarity of the design demonstrates the Japanese influence in Woodbury’s image. Its simplicity was very much against the trend of poster designs of the era.
Charles H. Woodbury was born in Lynn, Massachusetts, where his earliest work was part of the oeuvre of the group later known as the Lynn Beach Painters. While an undergraduate at MIT he became a regular exhibitor at, and at 19 the youngest member of, the Boston Art Club . After graduation from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (with degree in Mechanical Engineering), in 1886 Woodbury had great success painting up the New England coast and in the towns and beaches of Nova Scotia and exhibiting the results. From January to June 1891 he was a pupil of the Académie Julian in Paris, after which he went to Holland, where he studied the techniques of the modern Dutch painters. Upon his return to New England he settled in Boston for his winter studio and spent his summers in the small fishing village of Ogunquit, Maine; there he founded one of the most successful of the summer art colony schools that even survived his death. He was one of the most sought-after teachers of his generation, having begun teaching on a regular basis while a freshman at M.I.T. Ironically, he had little formal training himself other than a few months of classes at the Academy Julian in Paris. Like Winslow Homer, another New England painter with an affinity for summers in Maine, he preferred "to work out his salvation with little help from others in his profession". Nevertheless, Woodbury maintained a close friendship with John Singer Sargent and a pleasant acquaintance with many of his contemporaries including J. Alden Weir and Childe Hassam.
