London transport museum artists


In the 1930s the London Transport network of underground trains, buses and trams was regarded as the world???s most progressive public transport system and a role model of enlightened corporate patronage of contemporary art and design. Eminent artists such as Man Ray and Graham Sutherland created publicity posters, while Paul Nash designed upholstery fabric for the seats of trains, trams and buses. London Transport commissioned work from noted designers, such as Hans Schleger and L??szl?? Moholy-Nagy; while the poet, John Betjeman, wrote its tourist leaflets.
