Fine Graphic Art
There is something so universal and appealing with commercial art from the 1930s. It was the apex of a fine graphic art that had begun 50 years before, blending type and design with dynamic composition and saturated color. Those who try to imitate or emulate it in our day can't quite catch the elusive quality that came naturally to an entire generation of artists of that era. Bless their hearts, it was a wonderful generation.
