Item Sold


Purvis - Original Early 20th Century Gouache. Framed. Signed and inscribed. Some foxing as shown in photos.

Tom Purvis (1888 – 1959) was a British painter and commercial poster artist. Born in Bristol, the son of sailor and marine artist T G Purvis. He studied at Camberwell School of Art and worked for six years at the advertising firm of Mather and Crowther before becoming a freelance designer. Purvis developed a bold, two-dimensional style using large blocks of vivid flat colour and eliminating detail. From 1923 to 1945 he worked for the LNER and produced over 100 posters, around 5-6 per year or one every two months. He enjoyed a very high status in the LNER's advertising department as he was one of the major designers involved in the recognisable bold and graphic LNER poster style.
