ZIM Shipping Lines is today one of the top 20 shipping companies in the world and it is based in Israel. Its' origins were in the 1940’s just prior to the establishment of the State of Israel in 1948. The boats were initially used to transport new immigrants to the growing State of Israel. In the 1950’s ZIM acquired more vessels that were used for passengers as well as transporting cargo. In this image created by Jean David, we see the newly named SS Theodor Herzl and the SS Jerusalem with the mention of their destinations, Marseilles, Naples, and Haifa.

Jean David (1908 – 1993) was a painter and designer, known for his contributions to the Romanian avant-garde and to the early modernist art of Israel (then recently founded).
He studied between 1927 and 1937 at various art academies in Paris. In 1929 he participated for the first time at a collective exhibition in Bucharest and in 1933 he had his first personal exhibition in Bucharest. In the early '30s he was a member of the Surrealist group "unu" (meaning "one"). In 1942, he has left Romania in a boat with 12 other Jews. After being captured by British authorities in Cyprus, he managed to reach Palestine in 1944. Together with Marcel Janco, he founded in Israel the artist village known as Ein Hod. He also gained much reputation as a muralist and especially as a designer, having designed numerous posters and other works for the El Al and others.

  • 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.

  • Just wanted to say thanks for the poster. You sent it on Thursday and it was delivered the following Monday (nearly quicker than it took us to get home) to our house in Perth, Australia. We have just had it framed. We love it; it goes perfectly with the room.

  • 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.
