Original vintage poster promoting California Wine published by the California Wine Advisory Board. The artist, Amado Gonzalez (1913 - 2007) was born in Guadalajara, Mexico in 1913. He immigrated to San Francisco in 1927 and worked as a muralist and painter (with the WPA)and later as a commercial artist creating this lovely wine series. "Featuring symbols of the wine industry—a large, oval wine cask, a bottle and glass of red wine, grapes, rolling vineyards, and a cellar key, the poster proclaimed California to be the “Wine Land of America.” Such posters were shown at trade fairs and wine events to promote the emerging, revitalized California wine industry."
