CHARLES PAINE (1895-1967) MAKE YOUR HOME IN WELWYN. Circa 1939. 29 1/2x19 3/4 inches, 75x50 1/4 cm. Alcuin Press Ltd., Welwyn Garden City. Condition A-: small repaired tears and restoration at edges; small replaced punch hole in upper left margin; light foxing in lower text. While Paine lived in Welwyn Garden City, he was commissioned by the local development company to create a series of posters promoting the locale as a place to buy or rent homes. He had previously used the "the traditional image of nesting birds as a metaphor for starting a new family in a new home" for the London Underground in 1930 (London Transport p. 125); he revisits that motif here with the added emphasis on "home" by depicting the scene through a curtained window.
