In this stylized image created in 1953 for American Airlines by Edward McKnight Kauffer we see the elements of patriotism that are synonymous with Boston. The American flag along with the image of the Revolutionary Soldier remind the viewer of some of the history of the City of Boston and they serve to promote travel by American Airlines to get there.

American Airlines is a major airline based in Fort Worth, Texas. The company was founded in 1926 as a union of more than eighty small airlines and is the world’s largest airline. American Airlines is a founding member of Oneworld Alliance, the largest airline alliance in the world. Through this partnership they are able to coordinate fares and services with Airlines around the world. In 2001, they acquired the well-known Transatlantic Airlines. They still operate today out of ten major hubs in the United States.

Edward McKnight Kauffer (1890-1954) studied painting at the California School of Design before moving on to Paris, at the behest of his benefactor, Joseph McKnight. He attended the Armory Show in Chicago, which had a major influence on his artwork. At the start of World War I, Kauffer moved to England where he produced over 140 posters for the London Underground. His poster designs are known for their versatility in style and technique including futurism, cubism, and vorticism.
