Brownbridge (flourished 1930s – 1940s)

Boat Race at the Dorchester (1939)


Lithographic brochure

15 x 19.5 cm

From a small archive of works by Brownbridge, a member of the Society of Industrial Artists.

A design for a poster advertising the Dorchester’s dinner after the Oxford and Cambridge Boat Race. The artist has built his design around dark and light blues, to represent the colours of Oxford and Cambridge respectively.

Brownbridge’s design is marvellously 1930s, from the boldly decorative typeface to the whimsically glamorous guests and their waiters floating below the invitation. Boat Race dinners in London are rather different today; at any rate, prices are not normally advertised as ‘excluding Wines and Cigars’.

Society of Industrial Artists correspondance (photographed above) is not included; please enquire separately.

Condition: generally very good.
