Red Square,Moscow, Illustration for General Electric.

Red Square,Moscow,
Illustration for General Electric.

This illustration,for General Electric, was in my art closet that I was cleaning out this weekend. It was painted in Acrylic on illustration board and was based on a slide photograph that was in the Maritz Motivation Company slide reference library. General Electric was scheduled to go to Moscow in 1980 on a trip facilitated by Maritz. All the posters and mailers were printed,but were never used,because the Soviet Union invaded Afghanistan.The United States boycotted the Olympic Games  that year, and General Electric cancelled the trip. I believe they went to a Caribbean Island instead.
