Title: Wil Wite, the suit that swimmers wear

Artist: Unsigned

Date: c.1930

Size: 28"x42.5"

Comments: Remarkable American advertising poster for Olympia Knitting Mills of Olympia Washington, for their line of "Wil Wite" bathing suits. The water skier is a "fadeaway girl" a style made famous by Coles Phillips (though I believe he wasn't the artist on this poster). Amazingly...the one thing that the poster is advertising...the invisible! American advertising posters of this era and scale are so uncommon...and this is a superb subject, artwork and condition! Spectacular color litho work by Erie Litho Co.

Price: $1995

Condition: A, linen mounted, fine color
