Pennsylvania Railroad S1 Steam Locomotive Grif Teller

£450.00

Original vintage advertising poster published by the Pennsylvania Railroad company for their annual calendar entitled - Leaders of the Fleet of Modernism - featuring a dynamic painting by Grif Teller (Griffith Harold Teller; 1899-1993) depicting a view at night of an S1 Class Locomotive train travelling at speed on the railway line towards the viewer, lit up dramatically by the full moon behind the cloudy night sky with lights on in a house below trees on the countryside hills on the side. Grif Teller painted scenes for the Pennsylvania Railroad calendars from 1928-1942 and after WWII from 1947-1950s; the Pennsylvania Railroad (PRR or "Pennsy") was founded in 1846, merging with New York Central NYC in 1968 to form the Penn Central Transportation Company; the S1 class ("The Big Engine") was built at the Altoona works, a single example numbered 6100, with the iconic streamlined Art Deco style locomotive designed by the industrial designer Raymond Loewy (1893-1986). Horizontal. Fair condition, restored cracks and repaired tears, backed on linen.
