Lewandowski at Fortune

It’s a shame that artist Edmund Lewandowski (1914–1998) didn’t do more covers for Fortune magazine as I enjoy this combination of painting and design a great deal. The cover above shows how well you can illustrate a farming theme without resort to a view of rolling fields and busy tractors; the cover for March 1948 would still be a great solution today, diesel trains presented as an almost abstract pattern. Lewandowski is remembered today for his Precisionist paintings many of which continue the industrial theme.
