Adrian Henri (1932-2000) was born in Birkenhead.
He trained as a painter at King’s College, Newcastle under Victor Pasmore and Richard Hamilton.
Henri first came to prominence as a writer alongside
Roger McGough and Brian Patten in the groundbreaking and irreverently contemporary Penguin anthology The Mersey Sound (1967), one of the best-selling poetry books of all time.
Henri remained a prolific and respected artist, exhibiting
nationally and internationally. In 2000, Liverpool’s Walker Art Gallery staged a major retrospective which brought home the range and quality of his painting.
This exhibition of works on paper spans his career, and includes better-known pieces alongside rarely-
exhibited drawings, collages, paintings and prints.
