Washington (D.C.): National Gallery, 1972. Poster for the 1972 National Gallery exhibition commemorating the 150th anniversary of Olmsted’s birth. This exhibition highlighted Olmsted’s work throughout the country while a simultaneous show at the Whitney focused on his New York work. Together they established a recognition of his enduring contributions, incidentally spurring a renewed interest in the restoration of The Central Park, by then existing almost exclusively as a concert venue and softball field. Poster shows a photograph of Olmsted against a drawn landscape background. Offset color printed poster 40 x 30 inches, mounted on masonite but unframed. A very good example. Extra shipping charges required. Item #011784

Price: $100.00
