Liberty House was a Hawaiian department store headquartered in Honolulu. The specialty store chain had locations throughout the U.S. - hence the reference to New York. This poster was created to advertize an event at their New York branch, and combines the busy appearance of NYC with the beauty of Hawaii (the island can be seen in the background!). Sorel's image truly transmits the vibrant energy of this dynamic city.

About the Artist: "Edward Sorel (born 26 March 1929, the Bronx) is an illustrator, caricaturist, cartoonist, and graphic designer whose work is known for its storytelling, its left-liberal social commentary its criticism of reactionary right-wing politics and organized religion. Formerly a regular contributor to The Nation, New York Magazine and The Atlantic, his work is today seen more frequently in Vanity Fair. He has been hailed by The New York Times as "one of America's foremost political satirists". As a lifelong New Yorker, a large portion of his work interprets the life, culture and political events of New York City." (Wikipedia)
