This is a spectacular original vintage travel poster issued by Ellersman's Wilson Line to promote their cruises to Norway and Sweden.
The poster is a color lithograph of the original oil painting "Hjørundfjord" by Elisabeth Grüttefien. Hjørundfjorden is a fjord in the traditional district of Sunnmøre in Møre og Romsdal county, Norway.
Elisabeth Grüttefien studied painting with the Norwegian painter Eilert Adelsteen Normann. In 1903 she married the Berlin landscape painter Friedrich Hermann Kikebusch. Both painted predominantly Norwegian and Alpine motifs in their joint studio in Berlin-Schlachtensee.
The poster has been professionally restored for two large tears and some creasing and mounted on linen for conservation.
Would look stunning and a conversation piece hanging on the wall!
