Poster, Autumn Woods, 1938
This is a Poster. It was designed by E. McKnight Kauffer and published by London Passenger Transport Board. It is dated 1938 and we acquired it in 1963. Its medium is lithograph. It is a part of the Drawings, Prints, and Graphic Design department.
In the 1930s, Kauffer returned to painting landscapes in his spare time, particularly when he was in the South of France or at his country home. After many years of collaboration with Frank Pick, Kauffer’s latest styles fell out of favor with him. Kauffer received fewer commissions from the Underground. This autumnal landscape was one of his last.
