UK Greenline Down

  • 1933
  • Clifford and Rosemary Ellis
  • 25 x 39 inches ~ (63 x 99 cm)
  • Linen backed

    Linen backing is the industry standard of conservation. Canvas is stretchered and a sheet of acid free barrier paper is laid down. The poster is then pasted to the acid free paper using an acid free paste. This process is fully reversible and gives support to the poster. A border of linen is left around the poster and can be used by a framer to mount the poster so that nothing touches the poster itself.

    The price of this poster includes linen backing.

  • Clifford and Rosemary Ellis married in 1931 and worked together for the rest of their careers. It is hard to describe their unique style, which has the colorful and fanciful qualities of children's illustration, yet is also compelling, eye-catching and charmingly composed. Their aesthetic certainly appealed to a large swath of the general public, as the duo was commissioned to design posters for the London Underground, Shell, the General Post Office (GPO) and the Empire Marketing Board.
