I recently discovered the marvelous travel poster art created by Polish artist Stefan Norblin (1892-1952). Trained as a painter, Norblin had a diverse career as a portrait painter, muralist, costume designer, illustrator, and interior decorator.
When the Germans invaded in 1939 Norblin was forced to flee Poland. After a five year stay in India, he emigrated to the United States settling in San Francisco. Norblin found some success painting portraits of prominent Americans and working in design.
During the 1920s and 1930s, Norblin created a wonderful series of travel posters celebrating Poland.
The posters are lovely. Full of drama!

Too much time online instead of working.
