These were cut from the monthly calendar and were widely collected. This set was stored by a relative who had worked for the railways and had a subscription to the calendars. Winold Reiss (1886-1953) was a uniquely gifted artist and designer who emigrated to the United States from Germany in 1913. Today his vast artistic legacy is enjoying renewed recognition, and deservedly so. Probably best known as a portraitist, Reiss was a pioneer of modernism and well known for his brilliant work in graphic and interior design. Please click to see the Winold Reiss website at: http://www.winold-reiss.org/life/index.htm There is a total of 53 prints, and 2 info prints. Several have duplicate and triplicates as noted in the list. Each print is shown in its year group and a few at random are shown larger. If you are interested in seeing any of the small images at a larger size, or an individual title name, please ask. The 2 information pages explain the purpose of the project, the railroad, and most important to me, the artist, Winold Reiss, who portrayed the essence of these people in the highest visual sense. Circa: 1928, 1930, 1931, 1932, 1934? Size: Image is 7 1/2" x 10". Border width varies as shown. Condition: Most are excellent, with no creasing, dings, or bends. The color is brilliant and the boards smooth. Some have marking in pencil or pen, where they had been titled on the front or dated on the back.
