Edward McKnight Kauffer (American, 1890-1954)

Original advertising poster for Shell Oil dated 1932, depicting the 14th century Bodiam Castle in East Sussex. Conservation linen mounted and unframed.

A fine artist by training, Kauffer came to London in 1914 and within a year was commissioned by Frank Pick of London Transport to design their advertising posters, producing over 140 over a period of 26 years. An extremely diverse and influential designer, Kauffer designed posters for Great Western Railway, and a number for Shell Oil, of which this is a stunning example. Many retrospective exhibitions of Kauffer’s work have been held, including at the Museum of Modern Art, NY and at the Victoria & Albert Museum.

Size: 30 x 45 inches (76 x 114 cm)
