London Underground Aqurium Zoo Poster
Advertisement for London Underground.Rhythmic colored patterns mark the work of this talented painter, illustrator, textile designer and award winning posterist. Reviewing an exhibition of his posters the same year that this finny design was created, the Observer noted, ""Mr. Gregory Brown has helped as much as any man to raise the tone of the 'poor man's picture gallery'....Mr. Brown always keeps the pictorial part of his designs quite distinct from the lettering which, though both are harmoniously adjusted in the complete poster, could be cut away without impairing the balance of the whole picture...He knows how to get a surprisingly rich and varied effects in three of four printings. His flat tints form their pattern without the help of..a black outline, the effect being rather like that of stencil work.""
