An original Guinness poster from the famous series designed by the artist John Gilroy. During Gilroy’s long association with Arthur Guinness, Son & Co. Ltd., he created many of the company’s most memorable posters, often featuring Zoo animals in comic poses. The image of a bear up a pole refusing to return a bottle of Guinness to the zookeeper was first used in 1944. This rare landscape version dates from the mid-1950s.
