boston-themed watercolors set the stage for pivotal 1970's hotel room scene.
Starring Tom Hanks and Meryl Streep, The Post depicts the true story of the Washington Post's decision to publish the Pentagon Papers, classified documents leaked to them concerning the Vietnam War.
We provided five pieces of art for the scene in which these documents were released—a hotel set in 1970's Massachusetts. The Boston-themed artworks were drawn and painted by James F. Murray and printed by his son George in just that era.
