- 'Prints I wish I had published': In 1969 Bernard Jacobson opened his first London gallery; a fourth-floor walk-up on Mount Street, Mayfair dealing in prints by international stars, including Warhol and Oldenburg, as well as publishing prints by leading British artists including Malcolm Morley and Robyn Denny. Printmaking fitted the radical, pop-sensibility of the time and Jacobson was part of that heady explosion of interest in the medium.As the gallery approaches its half century in 2019, it is fitting that this landmark year opens with an ambitious 2-part exhibition exploring Jacobson’s personal and abiding love of prints and some of the remarkable works published by the gallery during an eventful 50 years in the business.
-'Prints I Published':2019 opens with Jacobson’s personal selection of important work from 6 centuries of printmaking, ‘Prints I wish I had Published’ and now moves on to a selection of some of the highlights of the prints Jacobson did publish during his long career – and what a selection it is. When Jacobson began in 1969, printmaking was enjoying an explosion of interest and was a medium of choice for a whole generation of artists on both sides of the Atlantic, including Andy Warhol and Peter Blake. Jacobson found himself entirely in the right place at the right time and this exhibition is a glorious journey through the five decades which were to follow.
