Adelle bought herself this Bernard Buffet still life print for her birthday way back in November last year. It’s entitled Nature morte a la citrouille or Still Life with Pumpkin and was originally painted in 1955. This print was made in the 1970s.
We’ve blogged about Bernard Buffet before, he’s one of our favourite artists.
We finally got it framed – a great job done by the friendly folks at Abacus. It’s found the perfect home above the wrought iron bed in our guest bedroom.
Well it’s finally happened – Andy Murray has broken the drought of 77 years. Wimbledon has seen the first British men’s champion since Fred Perry way back in 1936. To celebrate we’re sharing this vintage Wimbledon poster designed by Herry Perry (I wonder if she was any relation to Fred) in 1931 for Underground Electric Railways Company Ltd. Prints are available from the London Transport Museum.
Tom Eckersley (1914-1997) was a Lancashire-born poster artist. His bold, graphic approach lent itself to the kind of work commissioned by big corporations such as Transport for London, National Savings Bank, Guinness and Gillette. His style transmitted messages that needed to be attention grabbing, immediate, memorable, informative and often quirky.
