ALBERT IRVIN RA The Complete Prints


From his early figurative paintings to his first exercises in abstraction, inspired by his cartographical expertise as an RAF navigator, Irvin moved inexorably towards ‘painting which aspires to the condition of music'. Abstract painting devoid of any mimetic purpose would for him articulate ‘the physical and emotional dynamics of existence'. Working almost exclusively with the print studio and publisher Advanced Graphics since the early 80's, Irvin began producing sceenprints with the same intensity of colour and form as his paintings. This major retrospective of Irvin's printmaking output, organised in association with Advanced Graphics, is accompanied by a fully illustrated monograph with an in-depth discussion of Irvin's printmaking career by Mary Rose Beaumont.
