This is an original 1952 color print of advertising art for the Container Corporation of America by Hungarian-born artist, Gyšrgy Kepes, (1906-2001).

Period Paper is pleased to offer an exclusive collection of color prints of advertising art designed by leading artists for the Container Corporation of America (CCA). Items from this collection, "Great Ideas of Western Man Series," feature symbolic representations of some of the world's most famous thinkers and their ideas. (Please note that these are color prints --not pages removed from journals. There is no printing on the reverse.)

The Container Corporation of America, which manufactured paper boxes and containers, strongly influenced advertising art from the 1930's and beyond. Using innovative graphic designers and modern artists, Container Corporation of America advertising focussed on image rather than the product.
