In 1968, the Container Corporation of America came out with a series of posters entitled 'Aspects of New York City.' They were hung in parks, subways, neighborhood clubs, and churches with the goal of improving the quality of the city's public surroundings. Today, the ten-poster series is known as one of the most inventive and distinguished public arts projects of the 20th century, with a complete set residing in the permanent collection of the Museum of Modern Art in NYC. These images appear in countless books on Modern Graphics and are highly valued amongst collectors.
This is an ORIGINAL FIRST PRINTING from that series, meant to represent Lincoln Center. Designed by Giulio Cittato, this poster is one of the most graphically simple in the series, creating the essence of a ballet dancer out of the over-exposed arch of her movements.
