Additional Information: Original poster: YOSEMITE. Artist: Jo Mora. Dated 1931. Archival linen backed in fine condition; ready to frame. Mora’s map is a response to the sights and sounds he saw in the valley. The map shows many humorous scenes and shows the activities common at the time in the Valley. Many landmarks are shown in an amusing way. For example, a cloud resting on an easy chair is shown for Clouds Rest. A bishop is straddling the Cathedral Spires, a pair of bears poising to have their picture taken and many more. Of the thousands of maps, illustrations and photographs of Yosemite one sits proud as a work of art that captures the beauty and scale of the valley and is arguably as much loved as the valley itself. The map provides an overview from the Merced River entrance looking eastwards. The main physical features are clearly represented and labelled along with characters providing an associated visual pun. This is an Original Lithograph Vintage Poster; it is not a reproduction. This poster is professional acid-free conservation mounted, linen backed, and in very good condition.
