LURLINE: 1933 - Set of 5 Eugene Savage menus from 1950

Product Description

Matson Lines: Perhaps the most beautiful menu covers ever to sail the high seas, a set of five menus by famed muralist Eugene Savage (1883-1978).

Savage was commissioned by Matson in 1938 to create murals for the company. He spent three months in Hawaii and fell in love with the pageantry of the native culture.

The result was six large murals, each 4' by 8', full of color and drama. He delivered them to Matson just as WW2 began so they went into storage. Afterwards Matson used the images on a famous series of LURLINE menus.

There are five Savage menus in this set from an April 1950 LURLINE voyage - "Island Feast", "A God Appears", "Pomp and Circumstance", "Festival of the Seas", and "Hawaii's Decisive Hour". A description of the scene is printed inside. Unfolded, the menus measure 14" by 21".

The Smithsonian Institution has a framed set in their permanent collection.

Very good condition.
