Poster CHESAPEAKE & OHIO RAILWAY. WILLIAMSBURG 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. Hill populates the scene with people impeccably clad in the style of their time. Condition good with some tape residue on corners.
