By The Underground: A poster created for the British Underground Electric Railway Company by Anthony (Tony) Sarg, 1913.
Guatemalan born Sarg (1880-1942) moved with his family to England in 1911. There, he created many distinctive posters for the London Underground, as well as book illustrations and postcards. With the advent of World War I, he relocated to New York, where he did illustrations for many popular magazines and children's books. From 1935 until his death in 1943, he designed the mechanically animated holiday windows for Macy's Department Store.
