More About The Artist:
Sir Basil Urwin Spence was born in Bombay, India in 1907. He was a major architect of the post-war years, mainly in the Modernist/Brutalist style, producing a large number of buildings in the 1950s, 60s and 70s. Coventry Cathedral was possibly his most famous, and it was for this that he received his knighthood. He did not produce any other railway posters.
