Grand Teton National Park Grandview Edition Giclée Print
Between 1935 and 1943, the WPA’s Federal Art Project produced over two million posters in 35,000 different designs to appeal to the public’s inclination for education, theater, health, safety, and travel. Due to the fragile nature of paper, only two thousand posters have survived to this day—less than one-tenth of one percent!
Ranger Doug’s Enterprises recreated faithful reproductions of WPA National Park serigraphs. Produced between 1938 and 1941, there were originally sixteen stunning historical National Park posters (fourteen were printed in Berkeley, CA, plus two “See America” designs printed in New York in 1935).
The original WPA National Park posters were painstakingly restored, one screen at a time, as original-size silkscreen prints (approximately 13 x 19 inches).
Now, for the first time, large giclée prints of the WPA National Park images have been created with even more clarity and detail in 24 x 32-inch and 44 x 60-inch sizes on heavy, archival quality 250gsm fine art paper. The Ranger of the Lost Art Grandview Editions has embossed certification on each print’s lower right corner. A Certificate of Authenticity, complete with a history of the WPA National poster project, accompanies every Grandview Edition print.
The Grand Teton print was the first in this series produced in August 1938. The design was inspired by an earlier diorama with input from Fritiof Fryxell, Grand Teton’s first park naturalist (see letter below).
