David Klein's work for TWA in the Fifties and Sixties has become synonymous with the Mad Man era. A California scene painter, he moved to New York after WWII and quickly became the most sought after Broadway poster artist.

In the mid-Fifties, Klein began to work for Howard Hugh's TWA, as the dawn of the Jet Age made flying affordable for the masses. His work, so playful and accessible, featured rich patterns of color, sometimes in electric neon tones that would predate the psychedelic rock posters of the Sixties. This hard to find image for TWA's San Francisco destination surely was an inspiration for the rock artists, as it weaves the sights of the city into an organic, swirling cacophony of color and shapes.
