One of several posters using Crocuses to advertise the open spaces of London in the Spring, this panel poster is a very popular design and has been used on many other items as a design feature. It was designed by Andre Edouard Marty in 1933 for the Underground Electric Railways Company Ltd. and is reflective of the time it was produced. The poster advertises the parks in London to visit during the Spring.
Andre Edouard Marty was born in Paris where he studied at the Ecole des Beaux Arts and worked as an illustrator, engraver and theatre designer. He is well known for his fashion plates produced for magazines such as 'Femina' and 'Vogue'. Marty designed posters for the Ballets Russes at the Paris Opera in 1910, the Underground Group in 1931, and London Transport in 1933. He also designed sets and costumes for the theatre, cinema and ballet in the 1930s. In later years, Marty moved to design fashion enamel vases, plates and jewellery.
