The Shell oil company was an important commissioner of high quality posters during the 1930s and this poster is one of the Ellis’s best-known works. They created the composition by making several papier-mâché models, which were then incorporated into the final design. This poster features in London Transport Museum’s Poster Girls exhibition.
