Swann President and Poster Specialist Nicholas Lowry came across a small, unexpectedly excellent show of travel posters at Grand Central this past weekend.
He shares: "On a trip upstate this weekend I was caught unawares when I saw this exhibition advertised on the large LCD screens in Grand Central Stations main atrium. Forgoing some last-minute food shopping that I had planned to do I went to visit the small Transport Museum store and was amazed at the exceptional exhibition of what were almost entirely original art work and studies for posters for the London Underground. This is well worth a 10 to 15 minute visit!"
The show, The Art of the Poster: A Touring exhibition from the London Transport Museum, will be on view through July 8. For more information, go to: http://mta.info/mta/museum/whatsnew.htm
