Western Scotland (1935) Railway Poster
Richard Furness in his wonderful book, Poster to Poster, Railway Journeys in Art, Volume One considers Norman Wilkinson to be one of the top poster artists of all time. He writes about this poster on page 106 and brings attention to the way that the shadows and cragginess of the rocks are painted ‘in a quite magical way’. This poster was commissioned by London, Midland and Scottish Railway and London and North Eastern Railway in 1935. Notice the croft near the water’s edge, tiny against the imposing mountain in the background.
This poster is available in two sizes, as a mini poster or as a large poster printed on Giclee paper. See sizes and prices below.
