Artist: VIC Size: 44 3/4 x 30 in./113.5 x 76.2 cm The many posters created for Shell Oil during its Golden Age can pretty much be divided into two categories: the straight advertising campaign (i.e. “These Men Use Shell”) and, like this poster, the close up of the machine in action. Here, we see the gears churning within the engine, rapidly dipping into a bronze pool of Shell lubricating oil. There is a note of Cassandre’s famous LMS design in the simple Art Deco nature of the composition.
