Potter & Potter Auctions’ first sale of 2020 will offer over 650 lots of vintage posters, including travel posters and advertisements. One of the leading lots is a Disneyland and United Airlines advertisement by illustrator Stan Galli. An artist who dabbled widely in his career, Galli created travel posters, training manuals, and postage stamps before exclusively painting the Tuscany countryside in retirement. The available poster depicts a crowd of American families on a covered boat, steering past giraffes and a yawning hippopotamus. In the distance, the theme park’s iconic pink and blue castle is visible.
The vintage posters available in this sale often serve multiple purposes, such as travel posters and advertisements or public service announcements and propaganda. A muscular Hercules is featured on a 1915 poster promoting the Panama Pacific International Exposition. Campari Soda, an Italian aperitif, is the subject of Giovanni Mingozzi’s Minimalist advertising flyer. Beyond the posters, a selection of drawings and artistic prints, illustrations, and Black Americana will also be offered.
