Current and Upcoming Exhibitions
HENRY MOORE & BRITISH ARTISTS
Monday 6th May - Friday 31st May 2013, 9am - 5pm weekdays, Saturdays 11am - 4pm
Moore had started producing prints from as early as 1931, but it was a meeting with the master lithographer Stanley Jones at the Curwen Press in 1958 that was to prove particularly fruitful. The two enjoyed an excellent working relationship and Moore was particularly impressed with how receptive Jones was to any suggestion of experiment. He continued to make prints with Curwen until the end of his life, producing a series of superb lithographs.

Joan Miró was one of the creative giants of 20th century art. Drawing on his fantastic universe of signs and symbols, he was able to create a magical world populated by strange configurations in vivid colours. He made many prints throughout his career, their accessibility being strongly in keeping with his socialist principles.
