Invitation, E. McKnight Kauffer
In 1930, Kauffer became the art director for the printing firm Percy Lund, Humphries & Co. The company was co-managed by E. C. Gregory, who was also a major patron of modern art. He and Kauffer established a small gallery in the firm’s office, where they organized exhibitions of work by international artists. These included the first solo exhibitions in London of Man Ray and the typographer and book designer Jan Tschichold, as well as a retrospective of Kauffer’s own career in 1935.
