Original oil painting by Norman Wilkinson (1878-1971) for a London, Midland & Scottish (LMS) railway poster. Wilkinson studied art at Portsmouth and Southsea Schools of Art, and went on to become a well-known marine painter. He also made a major contribution to the art of camouflage. Wilkinson designed posters for the London and North Western Railway, the LMS and the Southern Railway (SR), and organised the Royal Academy series of posters for the LMS in 1924.
