Group W

By: bethkleber

In 1967, the Westinghouse Broadcasting Company commissioned nine artists to visit and visually interpret the Group W station cities for an advertising supplement to The New York Times. The illustrations range in manner of interpretation but all share an expressive style. I was especially happy to find another example of the work of Jerome Martin, who’s fallen into relative obscurity. See the full set on our Flickr site, including works by Paul Davis, Robert Andrew Parker and Phil Hays.
