      About the Artwork

      London Zoo has always been a popular destination, providing plentiful and exotic subjects to promote the use of the Underground. The first London Underground zoo poster appeared as early as 1913 with a scene of parrots and cockatoos. Many more followed featuring animals such as Komodo dragons and kangaroos. Here, the artist Charles Paine, known for his bold designs, entices passengers on to the Underground by depicting a rookery of huddled penguins standing out against a bright yellow background.
      This painting was commissioned by the Underground Electric Railways Company of London in 1921.
