Description:

This a wonderful and rare poster designed by Benjamin (Ben) Blessum to promote Norway as a summer destination. Blessum emigrated from Norway 11 years old with his family. From 1923 to his retirement in 1936, he was the representative for the Norwegian State Railways in New York.

The poster is issued by Norwegian State Railways and depicts a cruise ship inside a Norwegian Fjord. Stunning colors in the painting. This poster is so much better “live” than on a small photo. I've seen a travel brochure from 1928 with the same illustration.

This is the rare Norwegian version. Hard to find in this  excellent condition.
