Poster Art 150
London Underground's Greatest Designs
Exclusive to the London Transport Museum.
Over the Underground's illustrious 150 year history, it has developed an unrivalled reputation for commissioning a huge range of bright, engaging advertising posters from some of the world's leading artists and graphic designers. A panel of eight experts chose 150 designs from the 3300 Underground-specific posters in our care, resulting in a remarkable display and the largest London transport poster exhibition in over half a century. A fitting way to mark a very special year.
The exhibition runs from 15 February - 27 October 2013.
Title: Where is this bower beside the silver Thames?
Artist: Jean Dupas, 1930
Size: 35 x 28cm
French designer Dupas was well known for his Art Nouveau and Art Deco posters. Here, a summer outing appears like a page from a fashion magazine as stylish young people lounge beside the river. The title quote is from a poem by Robert Bridges.
