The Projection of England



S. G. Tallents, The Projection of England (1932), pp.11-12

‘To-day, as the result of scientific discovery, a people is known to its fellows by the impression which it makes upon them through the cable and the printing press, on the air and on the screen. If a nation would be truly known and understood in the world, it must set itself actively to master and employ the new, difficult and swiftly developing modes which science has provided for the projection of national personality. Moreover, whereas in the age of shadows countries were mainly self-contained, and derived from outside prestige little save power, pride and luxury, to-day they depend upon each other alike for their break and for their peace. No civilized country can to-day afford either to neglect the projection of its national personality or to resign its projection to others. Least of all countries can England afford either that neglect or that resignation.’

Was there a George VI style?, Apollo, Oct, 2004 by Alan Powers

Given the existence of a substantial lacuna in the stylistic mapping of the fine and decorative arts of Britain in the twentieth century, the present article offers a test case for a new definition of national style for Britain in the mid century, bringing to the foreground items of art and design that have indisputable significance in terms of their permanence and wide diffusion, but which have hitherto lacked any useful stylistic label.

For example, the British passport, to this day, carries on its cover an engraving of the royal arms created by Reynolds Stone (1909-79) in 1955 for Her Majesty's Stationery Office (HMSO) that is a development of the one he engraved for the order of service of the Coronation in 1937 (Fig. 1). An enlarged version of the royal arms by the artist Rex Whistler (1905-44), drawn in 1939, was recently installed above the piazza entrance to the Royal Opera House, Covent Garden. Both these examples show the persistence of a graphic style that is neither modernist nor Art Deco, but clearly widespread and enduring. They are examples of the hitherto unrecognised 'George VI style'. British postage stamps, coinage and banknotes, although redesigned many times, still show the enduring influence of this distinctive national period style.

Applying the King's name to the style, something accepted for periods up to 'Edwardian', but curiously not adopted for anything later, seems to provide an appropriate description for a national style more stylistically inclusive than modern, or even Art Deco, but which, if it accurately reflects its name, should have achieved its peak in the years between 1936 and 1952, and should, furthermore, show some evidence that the monarchy directly or indirectly influenced its character. I hope to demonstrate that these conditions are met.
