Tom Purvis (12 June 1888 – 27 August 1959) was a British painter and commercial poster artist. His work was part of the art competitions at the 1928 Summer Olympics and the 1932 Summer Olympics. From 1923 to 1943 Purvis worked for the London & North Eastern Railway (LNER) under the direction of Advertising Manager William Teasdale and then his successor Charles Dandridge, who both allowed him considerable freedom in his designs. During his time at the LNER Purvis produced over 100 posters, around 5-6 per year or one every two months. He enjoyed a very high status in the LNER’s advertising department as he was one of the major designers involved in the recognisable bold and graphic LNER poster style. (Wikipedia)
