Koala Native Bear Australian Travel Poster by James Northfield

$2,950Asking Price


A wonderful original travel poster by renowned Australian travel artist, James Northfield, (1887-1973), portraying a Koala, one of Australia's unique creatures, resting in a eucalyptus tree with her adorable cub. Northfield was commissioned by the Australian National Travel Association during the 1930s to create posters advertising Australian tourism; this is one of his most appealing examples. Printed on paper, this color lithograph (25" x 40") mounted on linen backing and art framed behind Denglas no-glare glass.
