Soaring over what is most likely the French Alps on a beautiful day, this colorful Koike portrayal of a 1930s Air France 22-passenger, three-engined airliner takes the viewer back to the calm before war broke out in Europe. Only 30 D.338s were built, but several of them survived the war and continued to see domestic French service for a short time. As usual, Koike's skillful use of color, light and shadow in the aircraft and in the various greens of the background create a scene that not only documents its subject beautifully, but turns this painting into an attractive landscape as well!
This print is reproduced on heavy art board and sized identically to the original, measuring 400mm x 315mm (15.75 x 12.4 inches). It's offset-printed, and the color reproduction has been approved by Koike himself. The art board measures 625mm x 453mm (24.6 x 17.8 inches), leaving white borders around the image to give you the freedom to have it framed as you please. The prints are packed in a special sleeve inside a sturdy shipping box designed to prevent any bending while on their way to you (for this reason, they cannot be combined with other types of items for shipping, they will be shipped separately, even if ordered with other items).
