Andrew Lambirth, John Armstrong The Paintings, London 2009 (illustrated, no. 233, p. 177)
A pair with Civil Aviation, this work was commissioned by the United Steel Companies Ltd for their advertisement series ‘The New Horizon’, of which this is no. 4 (steel) for Civil Engineering, used in the Architectural Review, June 1944, vol. 51. John Armstrong celebrates the skill of the civil engineer with a futuristic vision of a man-made urban landscape. This was painted during the war when civilian use of the car was extremely limited, many years before the congested arterial flyovers and motorways began being constructed.
