The WPA artist and art deco designer Vladimir Yoffe created this smart and modern machine age commercial illustration as advertising for Pan Am World Airways. The imagery shows a dizzying map of the earth highlighted by the routes the early commercial airline offered. Today, the Russian/American artist is best remembered for his work for the New Deal Federal Arts Project. His offerings included sculpture and architectural bas relief, and his works were exhibited at The Whitney Museum, The Pennsylvania Academy Of Fine Arts and New York’s Metropolitan Museum.
