Graham Sutherland (1903 - 1980) Away by Green Line Original vintage poster 103 x 63 cm A poster produced for London Transport illustrating the pleasurable destinations to be reached via Green Line Coaches. Sutherland's design depicts a scythe, a sheaf of wheat, and a farmer's sunhat - three promises of country life which the city-dweller might now easily access, thanks to the advent of British coach travel. Graham Sutherland OM was an English artist known for his romantic, abstract landscapes and portraits of public figures, including Churchill and the Queen Mother. Sutherland spent the 1920s mostly making landscape prints, but, following the collapse of the print market in the early 1930s branched out into watercolours. He also undertook a few commercial commissions for posters, working for London Transport, Shell and others. He served as an official war artist in the Second World War, painting industrial scenes on the British home front. After the war he worked in oils and explored figurative painting.

But motifs, color combinations, even certain images variously recur throughout the 24 paintings, shaking us up, causing us to realize that even the most seemingly casual, intimate scenes (a child's bedroom, a bathroom, the garden fish...

  • New York The Big Apple with Twin Towers (postcard hand signed by Valerie Jaudon)
    By Valerie Jaudon
    Located in New York, NY
    Valerie Jaudon New York The Big Apple with Twin Towers (Hand Signed postcard), ca. 1987 Offset lithograph postcard (hand signed by Valerie Jaudon) Boldly signed inside the Big Apple in black marker by Valerie Jaudon 6 × 4 inches Unframed In the 1980s under charismatic and eccentric Democratic Mayor Ed Koch, the quintessential New Yorker, the city actively began a promotional campaign to attract more visitors, using the "Big Apple" theme - which, for a time, was ubiquitous. The concept stuck to this very day. The NYC Conventions and Visitors Bureau, a city agency, enlisted the help of many top artists in the region, including Valerie Jaudon. The Bureau's advertising campaign, which included materials like this promotional postcard featuring a Big Apple blimp in the center of a panoramic view of the Manhattan skyline with the Twin Towers, was a resounding success. The present work was signed by Valerie Jaudon during a promotional event. This rare, postcard is long out of print and especially desirable as it depicts the New York City skyline with the Twin Towers - before they were destroyed. Extremely collectible when hand signed by Jaudon. We've never seen another signed by her. This was acquired as part of a private collection of artist's autographs from this campaign, so authenticity is guaranteed. Even though the 1980s was also the height of the AIDS epidemic - which hit New York City hard and felled famous artists like Keith Haring, in many other ways, the pre- 9/11 era in New York City, including the "Big Apple" tourism campaign -- seems quaint! Publisher New York Convention & Visitors Bureau, Inc. Valerie Jaudon Biography During the course of Jaudon's distinguished forty-year career, she has been committed to redefining the parameters of abstraction. A member of the original Pattern and Decoration group, she is a representative of important tendencies of the larger Postminimalist movement. Jaudon was the driving force behind the influential 1991 Sidney Janis Gallery exhibition, Conceptual Abstraction (reprised and expanded in 2012 in an exhibition in the Hunter College Times Square Galleries, curated by Pepe Karmel and Joachim Pissarro) and has continued to work toward the development of a grammar of abstraction. Most recently, Jaudon's work has been included in several national and international museum exhibitions focusing on the Pattern and Decoration movement: With Pleasure: Pattern and Decoration in American Art 1972-1985, Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles, CA (2019-2020); Less is a Bore...
