EDWARD MCKNIGHT KAUFFER (USA, 1890–1954)

Edward McKnight Kauffer was an American artist and graphic designer. He lived in the UK from the outbreak of the First World War and is best known for the posters he designed for Shell Mex BP and his 140 London Underground posters. In 1940, Kauffer returned to the USA,  where he struggled to obtain work until American Airlines took him on in 1947.
