London Transport Museum - Brightest London is Reached by Underground Print, 30 x 40cm
Originally commissioned in 1924 by Underground Electric Railway Company Limited, Horace Taylor's 'Brightest London is Best Reached by Underground' has long since been recognised for its use of colour.
The artist began his career working for the Manchester Guardian as a stage designer and cartoonist. From 1922 onwards he dedicated his career to designing commercial art and posters for numerous important clients including the London Underground and Empire Marketing Board.
Aptly illustrating the diversity and colour of London fashion, the vibrancy of the poster emblazoned the walls of the Underground at a time when film was still shot in black and white. Taylor even includes himself in the print, featuring as the bearded man in the top hat riding the central escalator.
