Britannica on the Underground

Filed under: Art on the Underground,Encyclopedia Britannica — admin @ 2:03 pm

Over the last couple of weeks the Encyclopaedia Britannica has been covering the recent commissioning of 100 works to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the London Underground’s Roundel. Two prints were made of each of the works: one added to the underground’s archive of art and one auctioned on ebay. Unfortunately the Briannica’s quality must be called into question once again; they failed to highlight Karl Holmqvist’s “Let’s Go Together”…that’s the one we bought.

Before I had web access, it was highly unlikely that I would have heard of the commissioning, and if I had heard of it, it would have seemed too far away to do anything about it. Sometimes we forget how much the web has changed our lives in such a short period of time.
