Description Unframed canvas with oil painting of the Golden Gate Bridge at sunset.
Artist/Maker Harvey, Maurice
Provenance One of the paintings commissioned by Delta Air Lines for its 1986-1992 travel poster series, which featured a different artist for each poster.

From Delta Digest article "Seeing the Cities Through the Eyes of the Artists," July 1986: "A graduate of the London School of Art with a combination of 32 years in advertising, motion pictures and fine art, Maurice Harvey has always been interested in mechanical constructions. His view of the Golden Gate Bridge depicts sunset, the most romantic time of the day in 'everybody's second city.' His works have been selected by the International Communications Agency in Washington for world-wide distribution, and his many awards include the coveted Emmy."
