Giants Refreshed, BR poster, 1947

Poster produced for British Railways showing men maintaining locomotives at the Doncaster works, Yorkshire. Two workers are painting the Sir Ronald Matthews locomotive while others are replacing the name plate on the Owen Tudor locomotive. To prepare for this painting the artist was invited to the Doncaster works where he made preparatory sketches of the Sir Reginald Mathews locomotive. Artwork by Terence Cuneo, son of the artists Cyrus and Nell Cuneo. He studied at the Chelsea and Slade Art Schools and in addition to a long career designing railway posters, he also painted portraits (including royal portraits) and ceremonial and military subjects

EDITORS COMMENTS
This photo print, titled "Giants Refreshed" takes us back to the bustling Doncaster works in Yorkshire during 1947. The poster, produced for British Railways, showcases the dedicated men who tirelessly maintain locomotives in this iconic railway hub. Terence Cuneo, son of renowned artists Cyrus and Nell Cuneo, brings his artistic prowess to life through this remarkable artwork. In the foreground of the image, two workers can be seen meticulously painting the Sir Ronald Matthews locomotive with utmost precision. Their brushes delicately glide across its surface as they breathe new life into this majestic machine. Meanwhile, other skilled workers focus on replacing the name plate on the Owen Tudor locomotive nearby. To create this masterpiece, Cuneo was granted access to the Doncaster works where he immersed himself in its vibrant atmosphere. He sketched detailed preparatory drawings of the Sir Reginald Mathews locomotive before transferring his vision onto canvas. Terence Cuneo's talent extends beyond railway posters; he is also celebrated for his portraits of notable figures including members of royalty and his depictions of ceremonial and military scenes. His training at Chelsea and Slade Art Schools undoubtedly contributed to his exceptional skills as an artist. "Giants Refreshed" not only captures a moment frozen in time but also pays homage to those unsung heroes who worked diligently behind-the-scenes to keep our railways running smoothly. This evocative print serves as a testament to both their craftsmanship
