Our next Original Vintage Poster Auction on Saturday 1 July will start online at 3pm (UK time) via Live Auctioneers and The Saleroom. A preview will be open at our gallery from Wednesday 28 June until 12noon on Saturday 1 July.

This auction will feature a unique collection of London Underground posters and memorabilia alongside a wide variety of over 300 original vintage posters from around the world – travel, cinema, sport, advertising, war, propaganda. New and experienced collectors and dealers will benefit from low starting prices with no reserves.

To accompany the auction, we are pleased to announce that the former Marketing Director of the London Underground, Dr Henry Fitzhugh, will be giving a talk at our gallery. Dr Fitzhugh introduced the Art on the Underground series, commissioning leading artists of the day, including many Royal Academicians. The initiative was seen as good decoration for the stations to benefit passengers and as a way of continuing the Underground’s long history of responsibility towards art and heritage. 

The talk will start at 6:30pm on Thursday 22 June. Tickets cost £5, available online [click here] and at our gallery.
