Reginald Montague Lander Midcentury Posters Part 2

July 9, 2018

Welcome to part 2 of my posts about the wonderful mid-century posters and illustrations of Reg Lander. He worked predominantly using gouache and watercolour and had many distinct styles. A very painterly rendition of Conway to start us off.

There’s not been a great deal of change as this photographic view of Corfe Castle in Dorset (below), clearly shows.

Sadly as there isn’t a great deal of information online about Reg, I don’t know if he worked from real life, sketches or from photographs. I’m guessing a mixture of all three.

I love these rural views. The texture and colours work so well together.

Slightly strange yellow and orange, cloudy borders, I must say.

A beautiful harbour rendition above and a very different style of work below, almost like a grey-green version of a Seurat painting lol.

If the images I found online hadn’t been attributed to Reg, I doubt I would have believed that they were all the work of one person. Great to see how adaptable he was as an artist.

One of my favourite styles is this truly midcentury 50’s and 60’s one below.

He must have created hundreds of posters during his lifetime.

Quite a prolific and hopefully affluent artist.

Look at these beautiful scenes.

More uplifting scenes to make you smile here.

These remind me of the work of Harry Stevens and Daphne Padden.

If anyone has any more information about Reg Landers I’d love to hear it. Which of his work makes you smile the most ?
