  • Linen backed

    Linen backing is the industry standard of conservation. Canvas is stretchered and a sheet of acid free barrier paper is laid down. The poster is then pasted to the acid free paper using an acid free paste. This process is fully reversible and gives support to the poster. A border of linen is left around the poster and can be used by a framer to mount the poster so that nothing touches the poster itself.

    The price of this poster includes linen backing.

  • "An impressionistic, spectral view of the Old Faithful Geyser" (Zega p. 83) created in the same soft, watercolor style of this artist's only other known poster, also for the Northern Pacific, promoting a Rodeo Parade in the Montana-Wyoming Dude Ranch country. A Minnesota native, Brewer is best known for his advertising illustration work for Cream of Wheat, but he was also an active muralist and a prominent portrait painter.
