London Postcards



A collection of 100 London postcards, each featuring a different artwork by the legendary painter David Gentleman.

From shabby post-war St Paul's to the glittering Shard skyscraper, here are over seventy years of quintessential London views in one box.

In 1950, aged 19, David Gentleman arrived into a war-torn city, ready to begin his life as an artist. Over the next seven decades, he would sketch, paint, and engrave his way through London, documenting the cityscape, and shaping it, too - most notably through his iconic mural in Charing Cross Underground Station.

Combining world-famous imagery with unexpectedly lovely scenes from daily life in the city, this box of London artworks is a veritable treasure trove for all those who flock to the capital.
