About this item

Genre: Travel & Tourism / Transport
Title:  Cornwall
Year:  c. 1950's
Artist: Jack Merriott (1901~1968)Size (cm): 63.5 x 101
Country of origin: U.K.

Famous for his poster designs for British Rail and the Post Office, Jack Merriott was also a highly acclaimed artist, acknowledged for his use of watercolours. Detailed original artwork was often the basis for the eventual posters. These remain highly sought after - the artwork for this poster reached an impressive four figure sum at auction in 2010.

Merriott's design captures the rugged, unspoilt beauty of Cornwall's coast. It is both calming and timeless, a very romantic poster stylistically in keeping with 1950's realism.

The poster is in excellent condition. It is unbacked, complete and free from tears. There are two horizontal folds which can be seen. Both which could be removed or reduced by conservation and should be regarded as superficial only.
