This is a fine print reproduction of a travel poster promoting tourism to Montana which was made for the United States Travel Bureau. The poster features a man on horseback gazing at a lake behind the trees. Vivid, snow capped mountains are seen in the background.
The poster was produced by the Works Progress Administration Federal Art Project. The initiative was created as an economic relief measure, part of F.D.R's New Deal, to employ artists and artisans to create murals, easel paintings, sculpture, graphic art, posters, photographs, etc.
