Born in the USA, McKnight Kauffer (1890 - 1954) studied in San Francisco and Paris before moving to London in 1914. He was commissioned by the London Transport system in 1915, for whom he designed 140 posters over the next 25 years. Kauffer returned to the US in 1940, where he continued his commercial artistic work. He is today considered one of the most influential designers of the 20th Century, at the forefront of developments in visual communication for over three decades. The account for American Airlines was one of the last commissions for Kauffer.
