NASH, Paul

Empire Marketing Board Poster by Paul Nash



Paul Nash  poster printed in colour lithography on thin wove, signed in plate. It was issued by the Empire Marketing Board and printed for H.M.Stationery Office by Waterlow & Sons Ltd, London. Victoria and Albert Museum suggest this was issued in 1930. The poster has suffered. It has recently been restored by a professional conservator. The sheet has been cleaned and  small marginal tears repaired. On the surface there are light crease marks. Not in pristine condition, but it is a rare lithographic poster which oozes Paul Nash’s style.

Sheet size 505 x 765mm (21 1/2 x 30 1/8in)
