More Information
Vintage travel poster showing one of Melbourne and Victoria's most-loved tourist areas, the Dandenong Ranges, gets special attention from master designer James Northfield in this charming travel poster from the 1930s. Northfield's signature themes of healthy outdoor activity combined with inspiring landscape views are strongly in evidence here.

As in his
Apollo Bay design, James Northfield revels in the wholesome appeal of the Ranges as a holiday and activity destination, showing off the leisure fashions and hairstyles of the day as well as the characteristic forested hills.

As always, Northfield has a keen eye for contrasts. Notable are the non-naturalistic, multicoloured light effects in the background landscape, which contrast with the pristine design of the protagonists' tennis whites.  In the foreground, he paints the Australian Tree Fern on the right with the Eucalyptus or 'Gum' tree to the left, both of which are ubiquitous in the area.

This is truly an outstanding quality poster. It is printed on Fuji crystal archive photographic paper and is by no means a flimsy poster.
