Ivan Chermayeff

Upstairs, Downstairs.

$150.00

Year: 1981.

Size: 30 x 45 inches

Five selected episodes of Upstairs, Downstairs capped Masterpiece Theater's tenth-anniversary programming in style. "Television's most popular series" engaged and enlightened its devoted audience with social and historical commentary on Edwardian England seen through the lens of domestic doings in the townhouse of a wealthy London member of Parliament. The poster here adapts Chermayeff's original 1974 design for the show's final season which garnered six Emmy awards. It features an affectionately drawn portrait of lady's maid Rose as played by big-eyed Jean Marsh, one of the series' co-creators. The red shape is an allusion to the giant bow at the back of the cap that was a standard part of the uniform at the time.
