Poster CHESAPEAKE & OHIO RAILWAY. WASHINGTON by BERN HILL (1911-1977) circa 1950 37.5 x 27.5 inches. Bern Hill was a graphic designer and a painter. He is best known for a series of paintings which were turned into posters for the General Motors Electro-Motive Division, all of which depicted trains coursing their way through the American countryside. In this separate series he depicts landmarks and well turned-out tourists up and down the Chesapeake & Ohio Line. This view is of the United States Capitol building in Washington, Construction began in 1793 and work continued until 1826, several architects had their hand in its design over the years, including William Thornton, Charles Bulfinch and Frederick Law Olmsted. As with all the images in this series, Hill populates the scene with people impeccably clad in the style of their time. Condition good with some tape residue on corners.
