Original SABENA Fun Brussels Helicopter to Paris vintage travel poster

c. 1963

About the Item

Original Sabena vintage travel poster. Archivally linen —backed in very fine condition, A, ready to frame. The image comprises three surfboard-style sections depicting New York to Brussels and to the Heart of Paris via Sabena, Belgian World Airlines. Sabena, short for Société Anonyme Belge d'Exploitation de la Navigation Aérienne, was Belgium's national airline from 1923 until its bankruptcy in 2001. Sabena produced numerous vintage travel posters during its operational years to promote tourism and its flight routes. One notable poster is titled "Fun Brussels, Helicopter to Paris." This poster likely depicts Brussels as a vibrant and exciting destination, highlighting the convenience of traveling from Brussels to Paris via helicopter. Sabena was known for its innovative approach to air travel, and the depiction of a helicopter flight to Paris would have been cutting-edge at the time. One of the surfboard-style images features New York, the next the World’s Fair in Brussels, and, of course, the Eiffel Tower of Paris. The "Fun Brussels, Helicopter to Paris" poster would have aimed to attract travelers by emphasizing the speed and convenience of air travel between these two iconic European cities. It also reflects the glamorous image of air travel during the mid-20th century, when flying was considered a luxurious and adventurous experience. Overall, vintage travel posters like "Fun Brussels, Helicopter to Paris" offer a glimpse into the golden age of aviation and remind us of the romanticism and allure associated with air travel during that era.

  • Large April Gornik Aquatint Etching Waterfall and Foliage Scene, American Modern
    By April Gornik
    Located in Surfside, FL
    April Gornik (American, b. 1953) Cascading Waterfall, 1998, Soft ground etching and spit bite aquatint, hand signed, titled and dated '98 in pencil. Sheet dimensions: 22 x 30 in. Cascading Waterfall, is an etching and aquatint on copper plate, printed on Arches paper. Its image dimensions are 14 3/4 by 23 1/2 inches. It is included in the collection of the Museum of Art, MoMA NYC. Commissioned by the print club of Cleveland, Ohio. April Gornik (born 1953, Cleveland, Ohio) is an American artist who paints American landscapes. Her realist yet dreamlike paintings and drawings embody oppositions and speak to America's historically conflicted relationship with nature. While she doesn't categorize herself as an environmental artist, she is a passionate supporter of environmental causes and has said, "I have no problem with people reading an ecological message into my work." Biography Gornik received in 1976 her B.F.A. from the Nova Scotia College of Art and Design (now called NSCAD University), and while attending the school she met her future husband, painter Eric Fischl. Art dealer Ed Thorp hosted her first solo exhibition in 1981, after having caught sight of her paintings while viewing Fischl's work. She is influenced by the feminist consciousness-raising of the late 20th century and, in speaking about female artists who have worked in the shadows of better known male artists, including Elaine de Kooning and Lee Krasner, she has said, "It's a problem. Women artists still receive lower prices for their art and remain less shown than their male counterparts." In 2014, FigureGround Press published the monograph April Gornik: Drawings, an extensive look at charcoal drawings done since the mid 1980s. The book includes essays by Steve Martin and Archie Rand, an interview with Lawrence Weschler, and a digital download of a piano and cello composition by composer Bruce Wolosoff, played by Wolosoff and Sara Sant'Ambrogio of the Eroica Trio. Gornik has remained committed to helping her community and making a difference, Gornik and her husband invested in 26 acres of land in which they donated in 2017 to the town of North Haven to preserve land. She also adds her funds to the Southampton Animal Shelter as well as being involved with the Eastville Historical Society. Collections Various permanent art collections include Gornik's work, including: Smithsonian American Art Museum, Metropolitan Museum of Art (the Met), the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA), Hood Museum of Art, Whitney Museum of American Art, Nasher Museum of Art, The Museum of Fine Arts, and many others. Two of her paintings, Virga (1992) and Storm and Fires (1990) are held in the Smithsonian American Art Museum collection. In 2007, the Smithsonian Art Collectors Program commissioned Gornik to produce a print to benefit the educational and cultural programs of the Smithsonian Associates. The lithograph, entitled Blue Moonlight hangs in the ongoing exhibition Graphic Eloquence in the S. Dillon Ripley Center in the National Mall, Washington, D.C. Awards Gornik has received several awards: the Neuberger Museum of Art Annual Honoree (2004), the 18th annual Lifetime Achievement in the Arts Honoree (2003) by the Guild Hall of East Hampton, and the Award of Excellence for Artistic Contributions to the Fight Against AIDS from the American Foundation for AIDS Research (amfAR) Recent Group Exhibitions 2022 “Boil, Toil & Trouble” (curated by Zoe Lukov), Art in Common, Miami, FL (with Ana Mendieta, Bruce Nauman, Maya Lin, Marina Abramović, Nicole Eisenman, Niki De Saint Phalle etc.) “COMPETERE: An Exhibition of Artist Couples,” The Bo Bartlett Center, Columbus State University, GA 2019 “That 80s Show,” Nassau County Museum of Art, Roslyn Harbor, NY (The East Village scene; Keith Haring, Jean-Michel Basquiat, Julian Schnabel, Cindy Sherman, April Gornik, Kenny Scharf, Robert Mapplethorpe, and Robert Longo“ LandEscape,” Katonah Museum of Art, Katonah, NY 2017 “Black & White,” Tripoli Gallery, Southampton, NY “Photography of Place,” Palm Beach Photographic Center Museum, West Palm Beach, FL 2015 “Seeing Nature: Landscape Masterworks from the Paul Allen...
