This piece was also featured at the Palm Springs Air Museum exhibit on Insignia Artwork in 2005. This rare pastel from Hank Porter (1900 - 1951) is matted with an opening of 10" x 9", and framed with Plexiglas for an overall size of 18" x 17". Frame is sold as-is. Art condition is Very Good with minor handling wear.
