Cutting Edge: Modernist British Printmaking

Dulwich Picture Gallery, London

NOW CLOSED

In 1925, the Scottish wood engraver Iain Macnab founded the Grosvenor School of Modern Art in London, which for a brief time before the Second World War became one of the most important centres for printmaking worldwide. This exhibition of around 120 works explores how artists such as Cyril Power and Sybil Andrews learned the art of linocut from their influential teacher at the Grosvenor, Claude Flight. Find out more from the Dulwich Picture Gallery’s website.
