A nice original poster with the motif used to promote America's Cup in 1980. The 1980 America's Cup was the twenty-forth challenge for the America's Cup.
The 1980's cup was held outside Newport, Rhode Island. The US defender, Freedom, skippered by Dennis Conner, defeated the Australian challenger, Australia, skippered by James Hardy four races to one. This was the last successful defence of the cup by the New York Yacht Club and the last defender designed by the naval architectural firm Sparkman & Stephens. The poster might display the two boats.
The poster is a very nice serigraph made by the Italian painter Franco Costa (1934-2015). You can also find the signature of Franco Costa in the lower right corner,
The poster is printed as a serigraph in very high quality with powerful colors and the paper quality is quite thick - like light cardboard. This means that the poster will stay in very good condition for many years if framed.
Note: this poster carries the personal signature by France Costa.
