This American Airlines poster by the artist Henry Benscathy (1909-1996) was created for the 1964 World’s Fair, which was held in New York City. In this poster we see the famous Unisphere in front of a stylized cityscape. The Unisphere served to introduce people to the concept of the international exhibits that were to be displayed. That same globe in the image today still exists in Queens, outside of Manhattan and stands at the entrance to the Arthur Ashe Tennis Center where the U.S. Open is played every summer.

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 One World 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 Trans World Airlines (TWA). They still operate today out of ten major hubs in the United States.

  • 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.
