Summary

Poster promoting ocean travel. Features an image of a well dressed man and woman seated on a ship's deck, surrounded by a pink border. The title appears in the lower border in brown lettering. "The style, comfort, ease and grace of a three month, round-trip cruise to Australia is conveyed in the languidly elegant view of a couple at rest on deck. In addition to their smart outfits, the artist also captures the light and shadows cast by the southern Hemisphere's sun."--Swann Auction Galleries Catalogue, October 2014.

Notes

Caption title.

Tentatively attributed to the British commercial artist Harry Hants.

Tentatively dated 1934 on the basis of an advertisement in the Yorkshire Post and Leeds Intelligencer, 29 September 1934, which advertises "Three months comfort for £140 first class: round voyage tickets to Australia and back, Orient Line" in a very similar typeface.
