Hong Kong - Fly TWA - original artwork for TWA HK poster, version 2


A subsequent evolution of the design for Klein's TWA Hong Kong poster, still having the images set within the sail of the Chinese junk, but with the Cantonese Opera performer featuring more prominently. This is a unique piece and a fascinating insight into the artist's work and thought process designing one of the best known 1960's Hong Kong travel posters.
