The art of uk motoring artists

Watkiss Chris D

Working 1940’s and 1950’s

Art for Riley sales brochures for example 1.5 and 2.5 1949 and 1950 brochures. Somewhat in the style of Wootton. Interesting that Riley in the 1949 brochure used art by both Watkiss and Connolly in the same publication. He also worked for Sunbeam see below for advertisement from The Autocar on 18th October 1946. Image courtesy of Hermann Egges.
