The British Museum in London Licences Joanne Short Art

  • 2 min read

Artist Joanne Short outside the British Museum in London holding one of her new art prints of the museum which forms part of the new range of licensed art products featuring Joanne Short's art.

The British Museum this year approached The John Dyer Gallery via our card publishers to explore licensing a range of Joanne Short paintings for a set of gifts for the British Museum Shop. Inspired by Joanne's hugely popular vintage style art posters and in particular her London art posters which formed a new range of art cards which went on sale across London during 2018.


"The London poster range by established colourist painter, Joanne Short is reminiscent of vintage Railway posters, her art lends itself to the iconic buildings and landscapes of London and her use of line and colour perfectly captures the vibrancy and beauty of the city."

The British Museum


During the course of 2018 the British Museum identified a series of Joanne's new London paintings that they decided to work with and they have now beautifully applied them to a range of gift items which are exclusively available for sale at The British Museum and on their online shop. 

All of the new London paintings will be released for sale in our 'Best of British' exhibition which opens at the end of November 2018. Find out more now
