  • In the Post World War ll era, Howard Hughes as the owner of TWA was a dominant force in expanding and promoting the routes flown by his company. As the economy was vastly improving, airline travel for business and pleasure was on the upswing and posters such as this were instrumental in promoting this form of travel. This San Francisco poster was created by the gifted American artist David Klein (1918 -2005), and depicts the Golden Gate Bridge as the main protagonist. The crisp graphic style used in this poster is a clear example of Klein's style and clearly demonstrates why he was, and still is, a popular figure in the poster world.
     
    Klein was best known for his influential work in advertising. Although he produced illustrations for Broadway theatrical productions, Hollywood films, the United States Army, and numerous corporate clients, Klein is best remembered for the iconic travel images he created for Howard Hughes and Trans World Airlines (TWA) during the 1950's and 1960's.
