  • This colorful poster presents to us the Caribbean islanders in a joyful moment among the palm trees. It was created to promote traveling to Caribbean islands with Pan Am, the “world’s most experienced airline”.
     
    Aaron Fine (?-1962) was a talented poster artist, book illustrator, and playwright. He is known for his series of Pan Am posters created in early 1950s, a great era for posters. He was also a close friend with Andy Warhol, who did the set for his play My Blackmailer. Fine died of cancer in 1962.
    Pan Am (Pan American Airlines) was founded in 1927 by Henry H. "Hap" Arnold, Carl A. Spaatz, and John H. Jouett. The company opened new travel routes to South America in the 1920’s and secured the support of Charles Lindbergh to help establish landing rights to many exotic locales. In pop culture, a Pan Am plane was used by the Beatles when they first arrived in the United States and can be seen in many of the photographs from the event. In film, Pan Am planes were featured in James Bond movies including Live and Let Die, as well as Spielberg’s 2002 film Catch Me If You Can about the true story of Frank Abagnale, Jr. who impersonated a Pan Am pilot in the 1960’s. Pan Am Airlines ceased operation in 1991.
