London Transport Museum’s Poster Collection is one of the most sought after in terms of loans requests the Museum receives. A loan must be agreed months before an actual exhibition opens to ensure that all the relevant paperwork has been completed.
This week, London Transport Museum has sent out seven posters and three artworks by one of London Transport’s most prolific artists, Edward McKnight Kauffer. The posters and artworks are being loaned by the Esoterick Collection of Modern Italian Art, who are holding their exhibition, The Poster King: Edward McKnight Kauffer from 14th September to 18th December 2011.
We are very excited to see this prolific artist’s work for London Underground exhibited with his other commissions such as those for Shell that he made during his time in England.
