Travel scarves were popular in the 1940’s & 1950’s. They were inexpensive-often bright, colorful and a little bit gaudy- and they became an iconic image of days gone by. They were usually satin or satin-like polyester- and not meant to be taken seriously.
Even today, you see this graphic design style still being used- whether as a cover art for Bruce Springsteen’s “Greetings from Asbury Park” or as a last month’s cover for Travel & Leisure Magazine.
Artist Alfred DeAngelo and his partner, Bob Fleen, imagine, create and silkscreen these new versions of a lost piece of Americana printed on high quality 14mm weight silk.
