Festival of Britain, 1951 - "Black Eyes and Lemonade - British Popular Art" poster by Barbara Jones, 1951

One of the more stimulating exhibitions organised as part of the 1951 Festival was that of "British Popular Art" held at the Whitechapel Gallery in east London. Curated by Barbara Jones, who also designed this whimsical poster printed by the Shenval Press, it is now seen as one of the seminal design exhibitions of its day, looking at a wide range of artefacts and subjects previously less considered, and the work of Jones is now far more acknowledged.
