A superb impression of the definitive state, from the edition commissioned by Braniff International Airlines, 1974. One of six plates comprising the Flying Colors Collection, bearing its blind stamp in the sheet lower right. In 1972, Dallas based Braniff International Airways commissioned Alexander Calder to paint a full-size Douglas DC-8-62 airliner as a "flying canvas."
The Flying Colors Collection created a piece of artwork (The painted aircraft) which was seen by more people than have looked at any other single work of art in the 20th century.
