Clifford & Rosemary Ellis: ‘Ocean Cable’
Clifford & Rosemary Ellis (British): ‘Ocean Cable’.
Highly decorative and scarce British poster commissioned by the GPO (General Post Office) in 1935. Framed with an acid-free mount, in a plain black oak section frame.
Overall size: 34 x 28 inches (86 x 70 cm).
Clifford Ellis (1907-1985) was a graphic artist and illustrator and much of his work was done in collaboration with his wife Rosemary Ellis (1910-1998).
During the 1930s the Ellis’s designed a series of posters for London Transport, produced advertising posters for SHELL (see page 19) and, as with this example, information posters for the General Post Office (GPO).
