David Klein Furniture

American, 1918-2005
David Klein was an immensely prolific travel posterist who worked primarily for TWA and produced dozens of posters for the now-defunct global carrier. He designed several different series for TWA, ranging from early work that was realistic to later work that was cartoon-like in style. David Klein was born in El Paso, Texas in February of 1918. He moved to California where he attended the Art Center School [later renamed the Art Center College of Design] in Los Angeles. During the 1930s, he was an active member of the California Watercolor Society. This group of artists often chose to paint watercolors depicting scenes of everyday life in the cities and suburbs of California. They painted directly with little or no preliminary pencil drawings and used paper as a ‘color’ in a new and creative way.

Original Vintage Airline Travel Poster TWA India Circa 1952, David Klein
By David Klein
Located in Bath, Somerset
This original vintage travel advertising poster - India Fly TWA - was created in the early 1950’s by the American artist David Klein (1918-2005). This beautiful poster shows an elephant decorated with precious gems in front of an Indian wall relief. Elephants were closely associated with royalty in India, often adorned with expensive fabrics and carrying a howdah for the ruler to sit in during processions. Trans World Airlines (TWA) was formed in the early part of the twentieth century and came under the control of Howard Hughes from 1939-1961. Hughes was responsible for expanding the company and introduced the Lockheed Constellation, or ‘Connie’, as shown in this elegant poster. David Klein is best known for the the iconic images he produced for TWA’s travel posters...
