London Underground / The Film-Lover Giclee Print
Pears was another Underground stalwart, creating 44 posters for the service between 1913 and 1936. This design is from a series that reinforces loyalty by identifying different consumer types, much like Shell's. These people use and campaigns. Here, Pears uses his illustrator's skills in a humerous vein to demonstrate that the Underground makes movie houses so accessible that anyone can walk in at any time. Good for latecomers, not so good for the seated patrons who have to stretch and crane to see the overripe love scene on the screen. Below the image an unusual notation - "Drawn on five lithographic stones by Chas. Pears., R.O.I." - indicates that the talented Pears did the lithography himself. This beautiful piece, part of an exclusive line of incredibly high quality commemorative edition Giclee prints, is printed on a thick, 100% acid free, imported heavy archival stock. The finest museum standard archival water-based organic inks and paints are used to produce a stunningly brilliant piece with a rich, non-glare matte finish. It is a wonderful reproduction of a vintage English travel / tourism advertising art poster for travel to England.
