Shell Oil Banting


Original vintage advertising poster for Shell Oil. Fantastic image of Boadicea holding a spear, standing in her chariot led by two horses, ordering a foot soldier to oil the wheels. The caption reads: "For modern lubrication - Shell Oil..." Boadicea (or Boudica / Boudicca / Buddug in Welsh) was queen of the British Celtic Iceni tribe, leader of the uprisings in AD60-61 against the occupying forces of the Roman Empire. Artwork by the notable English Surrealist artist, John Banting (1902-1972), who was introduced to the Paris art world by Cedric Morris and was involved with the Bloomsbury set, working on many book jackets for the Hogarth Press and designing ballet sets. He exhibited at Surrealist exhibitions in 1930 and 1936 and took part in Fantastic Art, DaDa and Surrealism in New York. In 1947 he contributed to the International Surrealist exhibition in Paris and signed the declaration of the English artists; the Surrealist movement in England then began to wane and he exhibited little afterwards. Horizontal. Good condition, backed on linen.
