This is a period-accurate Edward Wadsworth exhibition poster, showcasing his iconic 1918 woodcut print of a British navy ship in a Liverpool dry dock during WWI. This meticulously designed print poster is a tribute to Wadsworth's unparalleled artistry and historical contributions to maritime camouflage during the First World War.

Wadsworth was a pivotal figure in the British Vorticist movement, blending Futurist and Cubist inspirations into his work. He, along with other prominent artists and art students, was commissioned to develop 'dazzle' camouflage patterns for British naval vessels. These ingeniously designed camouflage patterns disoriented U-Boat commanders, making it difficult to assess the vessel's speed and direction, thus reducing the effectiveness of torpedo attacks.

Ideal for art aficionados and history enthusiasts alike, this Edward Wadsworth poster serves as both a stylish home decor option and a unique historical artefact. Experience the rich details and authenticity of a poster that appears as if it belongs in a 20th-century art exhibition.
