  • SAS South Africa is a c. 1955 travel poster by Otto Nielsen. The artwork was commissioned by Scandinavian Airline System (S.A.S.), which is known today as Scandinavian Airlines. Nielsen created many beautiful posters for SAS from 1954 to 1976. These posters showcase Nielsen's loose oil painting technique and feature the people and animal life from destinations across the globe. In this poster, Nielsen is mindful of the traditional African garb and unique pottery that one could expect to find in South Africa.
     
    Otto Nielsen (1916-2000) was an accomplished painter who dedicated much of his career to studying the people and animals of different regions. He illustrated many travel books outside his career at SAS. Nielsen created posters as well as calendars and other promotional material for SAS for nearly 50 years.
