More About The Artist:
Tom Purvis was born in Bristol, and was one of the most famous poster artists. A lot of his work involved bold two-dimensional blocks of colour, including some series for the LNER which are rightly famous. He produced a lot of posters, mainly for the LNER, but also for Austin Reed. He produced very few London Transport posters, which all appear to be stock poster designs with wording added in a box. After the war he moved on to paint portraits and religious pictures.
