Cyril Power The Tube Station, 1932, linocut, 101⁄4x113⁄4in (26x30cm)

CUTTING EDGE: Modernist British Printmaking


Gallery Road, London SE21, from June 19 to September 8 020 7747 2885

The summer exhibition at the Dulwich Picture Gallery focuses on a brief period of inspirational printmaking in the 1930s, featuring work by artists from the Grosvenor School. Founded in Pimlico in 1925, the school quickly established a reputation for the production of modern printmaking and linocuts in particular, with the teacher, Claude Flight and his students, Sybil Andrews, Cyril Power, Lill Tschudi, William Greengrass, Leonard Beaumont and Eileen Mayo producing vibrant iconic prints of the inter-war years. Their work documented a unique period of time, which is arranged thematically in this exhibition to include: speed and movement; industry and labour; art, sport and leisure. It also examines the materials and techniques used by the school and will include original tools, lino blocks and studies showing the artists’ revolutionary process of layering vivid inks to produce their striking works.
