Large Family at Table

Large Family at Table, c.1953
Pen and ink, 17.5 cm x 15 cm

A design produced for Ernest Cooper's London Health Centre Ltd. The size and detail of this drawing suggest that it was designed to be used on the cover of a booklet or catalogue; however, it has not been possible to identify a publication carrying this artwork. Most LHC publications were reissued with William Roberts's designs by 1953, and it is likely that this drawing was produced around this date.
