Exhibition – ‘A View of London’ at London Transport Museum (to 14 June)

June 1, 2009toJune 14, 2009

A View of London, an exhibition of illustrations showing different aspects of the Capital and life in London at London Transport Museum.

Over fifty works of art, all with the uniting theme of transport and how it features in the lives of Londoners and the urban landscape will be on show.

Using different media ranging from pen and ink to paper sculpture, artists have created scenes including breathless marathon runners, a newcomer’s arrival in the City, suited bankers walking to – or from – work, hidden gardens and pheasants at Waterloo station.

Organised by London Transport Museum in partnership with the Association of Illustrators, some of the UK’s best artists were invited to submit works of art that portray the city as an exciting and varied place for Londoners, commuters and visitors, along with information about the inspiration behind the illustration.

The exhibition is part of the Mayor’s Story of London festival which celebrates London’s past, present and future.

A View of London takes place in the Museum’s CBS Outdoor gallery at London Transport Museum, Covent Garden Piazza, London, WC2E 7BB
