The Flying Dutchman - Aeroplanes Art Print
Arjen Galema, a talented Dutch artist, created this captivating poster masterpiece in the 1930s, intertwining a modern Douglas DC3 plane from KLM Royal Dutch Airline with the legendary ghost ship, the Flying Dutchman. Known as "De Vliegende Hollander" in the Netherlands, the ethereal vessel carries a haunting tale that dates back to the late 18th century—a ship doomed to forever traverse the seas without finding a safe harbor. Despite the eerie connotations associated with encountering the phantom ship, KLM fearlessly embraced the legend and prominently featured it in their promotional artwork over the years to great success.
