A beautiful large antique lithographic advertising picture for Brighton & Hove signed by renowned Royal Academy artist Anna Zinkeisen famous amongst other fine art works for The London Underground train advertisements of the 1930’s. This very rare piece of advertising art history was commissioned for “ Southern Electric Trains”. Featured at London Victoria train station to promote the virtues/benefits/lifestyle and “Express train 1 hour journey from London” to Brighton & Hove ”The King & Queen Of Resorts” Signed by the artist this fascinating artwork is alive with scenes of life from the “Gentry” riding through in horse and carriage to children play fighting on the floor. A great piece of social history with an insight into the historical and cultural scenes of life of visitors to Brighton & Hove. This will appeal to a wide audience, from railway collectors/enthusiasts to advertising collectors, art collectors, historical societies and the local residents of Brighton and Hove. Fabulous detailing, very well executed and original decorative frame. A good size and great decorators piece. We love this picture and every person that has seen this in real time so far has commented on how fun and interesting it is. A very rare to find.

Overall a stunning picture and frame with artists/signature provenance.
