NT at 50 - Paula Scher Limited Edition Silk Screen Print
Limited edition of 200 silk screen prints, signed and numbered by the artist.
To mark 50 years of the National Theatre, in 2013 we took inspiration from the traditions of the NT’s Art Directors and asked iconic designers from each of the five decades to respond to the National’s history. Every production at the National Theatre generated a poster, often created by key designers of that time, which evoke not only the experience of the show but are also a part of graphic design history. The result includes work by Jamie Reid, Paula Scher, David Carson and Graphic Thought Facility, who have contributed elegant and thoughtful responses both to the National Theatre Company and to our iconic building.For four decades Paula Scher has been at the forefront of graphic design. Iconic, smart, and accessible, her images have entered into the American vernacular.
Scher has been a principal in the New York office of Pentagram since 1991. She has developed identity and branding systems for a wide range of clients that includes, among others, Microsoft, Coca-Cola, the Museum of Modern Art, the Public Theater, and the Metropolitan Opera.
Her work has been exhibited worldwide and is in many permanent collections including the Museum of Modern Art, the Cooper-Hewitt National Design Museum and the V&A.
