2. London Pairs Patchwork – Maurice Greiffenhagen


“It’s like Piccadilly Circus in here”. My mam.

This is the second square of my London Faces Patchwork. It is a patchwork of papers gleaned from the pavements (mostly) of the city in which I live. There are sixteen squares making up the whole piece. You can see it here.

This square was taken from a National Railway Museum Diary, 2015 (published by Francis Lincoln Limited), which was given to my mam, who did not use it. The page showed a London Midland and Scottish Railway poster by Maurice Greiffenhagan (1862 – 1931). The title of the artwork is Piccadilly Circus By Night, 1926.

Greiffenhagan was born and died in London. He was a Royal Academician.

He decorated the British Pavilions for the Paris Exhibition, 1925.

The patchwork can be found in my shop.
