About this item

Tom Eckersley is one of Britain's most celebrated poster artists of the 20th Century.

All of Eckersley's posters demonstrate his ability to convey a simple, direct message through economical and effective design. His style is instantly recognisable, due to his favoured use of bold, flat areas of colour, and his way of reducing figures and objects to flat geometrical shapes. He believed that a good designer could achieve far more with two colours than a wide range, as it was not the number of colours used but the way in which they are used.

In 1957 he became Head of the Design Department at the London College of Printing now London College of Communication which is where this poster was most likely printed. His work can now be found in the V&A museum amongst other famous and respected galleries.

Part of a run of eight posters depicting famous stars of the 1920s and 1930s this body of work were essentially tributes to Eckersley's chosen iconic figures. Instantly recognisable Eckersley has cleverly captured Groucho Marx perfectly using very little details, Marx's famous moustache, glasses and cigar combination simply speaking for themselves.

In general good condition with wear commensurate with age including some creasing to the poster.

Measuring approximately 57cm wide, 82cm tall and 2cm deep.
