Ivan Chermayeff

Between the Wars

$150.00

Year: 1981

Size: 30 x 45 inches

In a characteristic example of his conceptual genius, Chermayeff encapsulates American diplomatic history from Versailles to Pearl Harbor with a deceptively simple arrangement of three hats: the flattened World War I doughboy helmet, Churchill's homburg and the deep, inverted bowl-shaped helmet of World War II. Placement of type reinforces the design. Chosen to host was Eric Sevareid, a distinguished front-line radio reporter and, by this time, a political commentator for CBS-TV.
