Rio Braniff International Airways Copacabana Beach Design

Original vintage travel poster for Rio de Janeiro issued by Braniff International Airways featuring a colourful illustration of smiling lady dancing and playing music with finger cymbals on each hand, wearing a traditional Brazilian dress and carrying fruit on her head with a man wearing a straw hat and playing drums in the background, a plane flying next to the title text above in lettering decorated in a wave pattern like the Portuguese pavement at Copacabana Beach and the rest of the text below. Mid-century artwork by Robert W. Dunn who was the youngest soldier to fight in Patton's 3rd Army in the Battle of the Bulge during WWII; he then went to the Pratt Institute and produced posters for Braniff's advertising campaign in 1953 (information provided by the artist's family). The South American city of Rio de Janeiro in Brazil is a popular holiday destination.
