Item Overview

Description

This original pastel with pencil and chalk is from John Gilroy and was done in the 20th century. It is signed in pencil or ink. It was de-accessioned by a Canadian Museum.

John Thomas Young Gilroy (30 May 1898 - 11 April 1985) was an English artist and illustrator, best known for his advertising posters for Guinness, the Irish stout. Born in Whitley Bay, Northumberland, England, Gilroy attended Durham University until his studies were interrupted by World War I, during which he served with the Royal Field Artillery. He resumed studying at the Royal College of Art in London. He remained here as a teacher for a time until gaining employment at S.H. Benson's advertising agency. Here he created the iconic advertisement art for Guinness (featuring the Zoo Keeper and animals enjoying Guinness) which he is best know for.
