AboutThis is the first major exhibition of Cyril Power's remarkable linocuts since they were shown at the London Original Print Fair at Royal Academy of Art in London in 1989. Since then interest in the work of the artists of the Grosvenor School has grown internationally.
This exhibition celebrates a new publication, Cyril Power Linocuts - A Complete Catalogue published by Lund Humphries and Osborne Samuel. Philip Vann's accompanying essay gives us for the first time a thorough understanding of Power's work, putting it firmly into a contemporary context.
This exhibition includes virtually all of Power's known linocuts together with a number of related proofs and studies previously unseen. A number of works come on loan from as far afield as Auckland City Art Gallery in New Zealand, the Leslie and Johanna Garfield Collection in New York and from private collections at home and abroad.
We will also be exhibiting some of Power's many sketchbooks dating from throughout his life. These give a fascinating insight into his philosophy, his poetry, studies and ideas for his linocuts and include many individual drawings that are works of art in their own right.
There is a book to accompany this exhibition priced at £25 + p&p. If you would like to order a copy please contact Tania Sutton at the gallery: email@example.com
