Britains Landmarks - Shell Oil poster by Edward McKnight Kauffer, 1936. Kauffer (1890-1954) is considered one of the most influential graphic designers of the 20th. Century. Originally a painter from the U.S. he moved to Britain in 1914, and became Shell's principal poster designer, producing over 180 artworks for Shell during the 1920s and 1930s. Here, he encourages travel to Britain's landmarks with his own painting of Dinton Castle.
