  • Anonymous Original Art Deco Design for Poster: Norwegian Cruises by Blue Star Luxury Line

    Gouache on paper c. 1930s 35x25cm It has not yet been possible to identify a poster for which this was the design. A well-painted design for a poster for cruises to Norway. A funnel pours out a stylised stream of smoke. The distance in the fjord is cleverly demarkated by the use of horizontal white lines. The interlocking spurs of the fjord are clearly visible, and a spectacular use of colour helps the Art Deco design. Isolated spotting and loss of paint, as visible in photograph. In a fine hand-finished black box frame, with AR anti-reflective glass. A rare survivor which shows very handsomely.

    Shell Guide to Cambridgeshire Original poster c. 1960s 76x51cm Shell commissioned a series of posters to go with their County Guide books, and they commissioned paintings by the leading artists of the day.

A painter of landscapes and still-lives and illustrator - particularly of botanic works - who worked extensively with wood engravings, he was a natural choice for Shell. His most famous work is probably 'Over the Top' which hangs in the Imperial War Museum, relating to a counter-attack by 1st Battalion Artists' Rifles at Welsh Ridge on 30 December 1917. Of the eighty men who went over the top, sixty-eight were killed or wounded within the first few minutes. Nash escaped and painted the picture three months later. The Tate holds his 1918 painting 'The Cornfield' which was his first non-war painting (he only started painting in oils in 1914). Condition: mounted in conservation mount and wrapped in plastic sleeve (mount hides short edge tears).
