Poster, Group X, Mansard Gallery

This is a Poster. It was designed by E. McKnight Kauffer and printed by Dangerfield Printing Company Ltd..

This object is not part of the Cooper Hewitt's permanent collection. It was able to spend time at the museum on loan from The Museum of Modern Art as part of Underground Modernist: E. McKnight Kauffer.

It is dated 1920. Its medium is lithograph. It is a part of the department.

The London Group no longer suited Kauffer’s ambitions. He approached Wyndham Lewis about forming a new artists’ collective that could support its members in producing work for industry. In the spring of 1920, Lewis, Kauffer, Wadsworth, and other artists formed Group X. Public reception fell flat and the group disbanded after only one exhibition.

It is credited The Museum of Modern Art, New York. Gift of the designer, 1939.
