The Spice of Life, Elizabeth Harvey-LeeA Variety of prints from the 15th – 21st centuries

This year’s winter offering includes pioneers, rarities, oddities, and a wide variety of other delights.

It ranges from a Dürer woodcut illustration to the Apocalypse, revolutionary in its scale in 1497; through a selection of Hollar’s miniature etchings in his new ‘genre’ of female fashions; a sheet for Saftleven’s large, etched, excessively rare 1669 panorama of Utrecht; and Thomas Shotter Boys’ 1839 anticipation of artists’ original colour lithography; to Anne Desmet’s progressive six wood-engraved ‘Snapshots’ of St Paul’s, 2002.

A small collection of German prints from the end of the 19th and early years of the 20th centuries are powerful uncompromising portrayals, monumental in size and presence, even ‘challenging’ in today’s art parlance and appropriately in the anniversary year of his birth include an over-life size portrait of Charles Darwin.

The Spice of Life, Elizabeth Harvey-LeeIn addition to the colour lithographs of T.S. Boys there are coincidentally other views of the city of Rouen by Camille Pissarro, Hedley Fitton and the Scottish etcher William Walker, each very different in character.

Other sub-themes to emerge are music, animals and Grosvenor School colour linocuts by obscure ladies.

There are interesting groups of etchings by Laura Knight (including her very rare first etching), Ernest Heber Thompson, Walid Abu Shakra (a contemporary Arab Israeli printmaker) and Irena Makoveeva (a contemporary Russian artist).
