Harry Riley (1895-1966) 'A Spanish Farm', oil on canvas. Hugely popular and prolific, he was principally a commercial artist, best known for his iconic poster designs of the 1920s-1960s, for the likes of British Rail, BOAC and Qantas.
His bright, joyful and idyllic depictions of British seaside holiday destinations, such as Morecambe, Plymouth, Weston-Super-Mare and Ilfracombe, were used to advertise the British rail network and have come to define Post-War British leisure and travel.
