Product code: XS-590

Product information

Poster produced in 1933 by Queensland Government Tourist Bureau encouraging travellers to come and discover the ‘Marine Wonders of the Great Barrier Reef’. A contrasting cross section shows three men in a boat enjoying a peaceful sunny day whilst below the surface is the colourful coral reef seething with exotic fish and marine life. The artist Percy Trompf (1902-1964) was born in Victoria, Australia and began his commercial artistic career designing confectionery packaging. He also designed thousands of advertising posters but the widespread recognition of his posters for the Australian National Travel Association and the Victorian Government Railway is probably what he is most known for. His bright, colourful, optimistic pictures had wide appeal, especially during the Depression and in the 1930s his posters attracted lots of attention overseas.

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