Catalogue Note

This watercolour was published on the front cover of Punch Festival, dated 30th April 1951 (a colour reproduction of the cover is included with this lot). It had not been possible to celebrate the centenary of Punch in 1941 because of the war. However, with the Festival of Britain in 1951, the opportunity was taken to produce a "Festival" number, the largest ever, part of which was organised around an imaginary exhibition in Bouverie street. With the use of special colours, it was an issue of some importance in the history of colour-printing.
