Trade card announcing an exhibition of portraits painted by Benjamin Creme in the 1940s and 1950s, running from 19 November until 3 December 1985. The card features a brief biography, two colour reproductions, two b/w reproductions, plus a reproduction of one of his drawings for W.S. Graham's Cage Without Grievance (1942).

Creme moved to London in 1946 where he set up a studio in Battersea. Through Jankel Adler, who had moved there at the end of 1942, Creme became part of a larger circle which included John Minton, Prunella Clough and Keith Vaughan.
    Benjamin Creme exhibited regularly in group shows at the AIA Gallery, the London Group, and various commercial galleries, including Gimpel Fils, Redfern Gallery and Leger Galleries. In 1949 one of his paintings was purchased for the Pembroke College Collection in Oxford. According to an announcement in The Courtauld Institute of Art Friend's Events archive for February 2010 the Baring Asset Management Collection of Art has also acquired a number of his works.

The painting on the cover is 'Woman at a Table' (1947).
