Colin created images for the plays, balls and music halls of Paris throughout the 1920s, when his work became synonymous with the city's cultural scene at the time. This is a rare piece for the artist in that it is a travel poster for an American airline. Here, Colin scales back his signature Art Deco style in favor of a simpler aesthetic, showing a TWA Constellation circling the globe, half of which is covered in night's shadow
