Expedition to Cambodia: A Rare Poster Has Arrived!

Here at The Ross Art Group, we like to say that “every poster has its story”. The recently acquired and exceedingly rare Les Ruines d’Angkor by George Groslier (above) is no exception.
This poster’s story is one that is rooted in Imperialism, ancient religions, and one man’s quest to share the beauty of his homeland with the world.

The Mather & Co. Work Incentive Posters

The specific group of Mather posters that we are offering are all from the year 1927 and were actually used in a factory in the Northeast. These posters have stood the test of time very well and we had each conservation mounted onto linen and professionally restored. The posters of 1927 are rarely seen outside of institutions.
