The Art of Guinness
This series was created not for advertisements, rather the general meeting at the Guinness Park Royal Board Room, May 1952. The head artist, John Gilroy, was asked by the S.H. Benson Advertising Agency to create masterpieces for Guinness. These paintings were never meant to be seen by the public. Each painting is listed with the names of the original master artist and all are illustrated in the book "The Lost Art of Guinness" by David Hughes. Please view at the bottom of this page the original letter from Benson to John Gilroy ordering this series.
