This is one of two posters commissioned by London Transport in 1933 to promote the annual tennis tournament at Wimbledon. It was designed by Sybil Andrews whose preferred name was Andrew Power.
Whilst studying at the New Grosvenor School of Modern Art in London, Andrews shared a studio with Cyril Power. Power was later instrumental in obtaining poster commissions for her from London Transport. She acknowledged this by signing the work 'Andrew Power'. Her posters for London Transport, all dating from 1933, were also given the joint signature 'Andrew Power'.
Sybil Andrews designed posters for London Transport between 1933 and 1935.
The other Wimbledon poster commissioned that year, designed by EA Marty, was in a far more conventional style. By issuing two very different posters, London Transport could appeal to a broader audience.
