Story of this Masterpiece by Percival Albert Trompf

Painted some when in the 1930s by Australian artist Percival Albert Trompf, this vintage poster takes a surprising little twist once you read the captions. What appears to be military propaganda-art at first, is in fact just a clever marketing strategy to promote the northern region of the State Queensland, Australia.

The illustration shows a rather sharply dressed man in his best age, wearing a white shirt, chino pants and a green pith helmet. He's holding a walking stick in his right hand, while using his left to make his voice be heard: "North Queensland calls you". Not for war but "to a winter holiday in the tropics" - who could say no to that?

The vintage color palette used by the Percy, to paint the deep blue sky gently touched by the green palm trees, creates a beautiful sunny and tropical atmosphere. Decorate your home with this very rare travel poster to bring the cleverness of 1930s advertisements into your rooms, all the while increasing wanderlust and sparking tropical vibes even during winter holiday! This one is, no doubt, a perfect conversation starter as well.
