Welcome to the official web site of Claude Henry Buckle RI RSMA

This site provides a genuinely authoritative source of information on the artist, who was born in 1905 and who was painting until his death in 1973. Claude Buckle concentrated on commercial architectural work in the 30's through to the 60's. He became one of most prolific and recognisable of British designers of railway posters producing over a 100 published images in oils and watercolour. The poster map shows their locations in the UK. Many are still important tourist destinations. From the late 50's through the 60's and early 70's he established himself as one of the UK's leading watercolourists earning recognition through the Royal Institute of Painters in Water Colours and the Royal Society of Marine Artists. He painted over 300 water colours for private sale specialising in water scenes and historic buildings. In addition to poster design and private exhibitions he also accepted a large number of architectural commissions. This culminated in a painting of Hinkley Point A nuclear power station making him one of the UK's top Graphic Architectural Artists. This was exhibited at the Brussels World Fair in 1958.
