Welcoming 130 guests to the opening of a major retrospective on the work of designer Abram Games at the Jewish Museum in Camden on Sunday, museum chair Lord Young said it was "as good an exhibition as we've put on".
The display - marking the centenary of the late artist's birth - includes many of his famous wartime and London Transport posters, plus designs for Jewish organisations and JC Rosh Hashanah covers. It also explores Games's Jewish background and methods of working.
Artist David Gentleman, who was taught by Games at the Royal College of Art, paid tribute to both his artistic contribution and work ethic. Games's children Naomi, Daniel and Sophie were among the guests.
Museum chief executive Abigail Morris said afterwards: "We are delighted to show the iconic works of Abram Games and it was particularly lovely to have his children at the opening."
The exhibition was proving "hugely popular as people recognise old favourites as well as discovering new delights".
