Picasso - Faunes et Chevre, 1959
Picasso - L'Aubade, avec Femme Accoudee, 1959
Cyril Power - Speed Trial, 1932
Cyril Power was a member of the Grosvenor School of linocutters who created linocut prints as a means of producing affordable modern art for the general public. Grosvenor School prints were influenced by Italian Futurist artists and are expressive, and full of colour and movement. They are highly collectable and very expensive!
Sol Lewitt - (Untitled) Doctors of the World, 2001
I did not know that Sol Lewitt produced lino cut prints so this exhibition was enlightening. His love of colour was central to his work and is made clear in this print.
Fred Sandback - Untitled, 1975
Sandback's lino prints are very sparse and minimal to reflect the work of his spatial, linear sculptures.
Wayne Thiebaud - Sandwich, 1970
Wayne Thiebaud - Candy Counter, 1970
Thiebaud's prints like his paintings are fun and graphic in style.
Gary Hume - Paradise 4, 2012
I love this piece by Gary Hume. The scale is large and the colours are very seductive and calming.
Reece Jones - Does A One Legged Duck Swim In Circles? II, 2015
Reece Jones - Does A One Legged Duck Swim In Circles? 2015
I really liked the oddness of the images in these prints. I had not heard of Jones before and need to seek out more of his work.
Ray Richardson - Clobber, 2015
There are also print contributions from Peter Blake and his daughter Rose in this survey of the lino medium. I would have liked to see contributions from Edward Bawden who is renowned for the skill and inventiveness in his exceptional lino cut prints, and other contemporary prinmakers who use lino like Paul Catherall and Angie Lewin, in this show, but it wasn't meant to be a comprehensive survey of linocutting and nevertheless is a good exhibition that demonstrates the versatility of the lino-cut print.
