The Beggarstaffs

Sir William Nicholson
  English (1872-1949)
James Pryde
  Scottish (1866-1941)

The Beggarstaffs (Sir William Nicholson, English, 1872-1949 & James Pryde, Scottish, 1866-1941) Under the pseudonym, they virtually created the modern poster, with clear outlines and large areas of flat colour. Perhaps the most influential graphic designers of all time.

"He paints his pictures dressed in spotless white ducks and socks with shiny – ever so shiny – patent leather shoes, and if you come to think of it, you cannot imagine anyone painting William Nicholson’s pictures in anything but spotless white ducks and shiny, ever so shiny patent leather shoes. Think of tweed trousers, blue blouse, and brown shoes. Impossible." S.K.N.
(Stanley Kennedy North), Contemporary British Artists, 1923
