I believe the signature reads "S Prout" along with the date "52".

Unfortunately I haven't been able to find out much info about the artist.

 Deke, I found a few blog posts and others that have had this same poster for sale, mentioning the same S. Prout as the artist, but nothing more about him/her unfortunately.
