Designed by iconic Australian graphic artist James Northfield, this reproduction print depicts Melbourne's CBD as it was in the heyday of the 1940s. Featuring Hoddle's famous geometric grid and bisected by the iconic Yarra River, Northfield portrayed the dual character of Melbourne as a modern business hub and the lush 'Garden Capital' of Victoria.
James Northfield was one of the most celebrated commercial artists of the 20th century in Australia. He was recognised for his sound draughtsmanship, his excellent composition and the remarkable atmosphere of light and colour with which he captured the quality of the Australian landscape. His work appeared in billboard advertisements, promotional travel posters and posters relating to World Wars I and II.
