The Artist

ALFRED LEETE

Alfred Ambrose Chew Leete (1882 - 1933) a British graphic artist who studied at Kingsholme School and The School of Science and Art, before moving to London in 1899 and taking a post as an artist.

His career as a paid artist had begun in 1897 when the Daily Graphic accepted one of his drawings; later he contributed regularly to a number of magazines including Punch Magazine, The Strand Magazine and Tatler Magazine.

As a commercial artist he designed numerous posters and advertisements, especially in the 1910s and 1920s, for such brands as Rowntrees chocolates, Guinness and Bovril and his series of advertisements for the Underground Electric Railways Company (the London Underground) were very well known.

Alfred Leete’s prolific output was characterized by its humour, keen observation of the everyday and an eye for strong design.
