This Milton Glaser creation for the Saratoga Festival is based on a drawing by Maxfield Parrish and depicts a satyr sitting next to a river. The geometric circles offer more than a deco psychedelia: they are meant to convey that the meditative creature is engaged actively in listening. In 1954, with university classmates Seymour Chwast and Ed Sorel, Milton Glaser co-founded the legendary Push Pin Studios, whose work would define modern graphic design. Now 83, Glaser’s influence on contemporary illustration and design is considered inestimable.
Milton Glaser is one of the world’s top graphic designers. He co-founded New York magazine and his work has been honored with retrospectives by leading museums across the globe. Original unsigned poster. Unframed.
