Bank art

Bankers have been the subject of plenty of news stories this month, but in May they will also be the theme for an art exhibition at London Wall’s The Baring Archive.

Webb & Webb director Brian Webb, who is also a visiting professor at the University of the Arts London, has created prints for the exhibition based on bond certificates from the end of the 19th century. Webb has used an inversion of the old saying ‘My word is my bond’ and a quotation from Gilbert and Sullivan’s Iolanthe that refers to the Baring bank.
