This poster was commissioned by the Underground Electric Railways Company of London in 1921. It was designed by Edward McKnight Kauffer and captures the dynamics of a crowd heading through the London rain towards the winter sales. The bold shapes and blocks of flat colour suggest the influence of traditional Japanese woodcuts. The abstract swirl of a coat tail in the wind and the shards of rain that slice diagonally through the composition recall Kauffer’s brief association with Vorticism.
