Golden Gate Bridge
The Golden Gate Bridge is a spectacularly beautiful bridge found spanning San Francisco Bay in California. Regarded as one of the modern 'Wonders of the World' by the American Society of Civil Engineers, this bridge is a truly remarkable sight and acts as the perfect subject for a striking photo poster.
History of the Golden Gate Bridge
The bridge was completed in 1937, and made history by being the longest suspension bridge in the world at the time of completion. The elegant steel structure took four years to build and was designed by Joseph Strauss, an engineer and poet. The Golden Gate Bridge is painted orange vermillion, known as 'International Orange', as it supposedly blends in with the warm colours of the land masses in its setting, and contrasts with the cool colors of the sea and the sky. This attention to detail and colour makes for a spectacular piece of artwork.
The Golden Gate Bridge as a Poster
The impressive, internationally recognized landmark makes for a wonderful poster, art print or canvas due to its simple elegance and the beauty of its setting. A poster depicting the Golden Gate Bridge is perfect for the wall of any home or office, as its famous profile adds a touch of wondrous America to any room.
