To coincide with the exhibition, School Prints, we are delighted to offer for sale a series of the original 1940s limited edition prints, in partnership with Goldmark Gallery.

In 1946 and 1947, Brenda Rawnsley encouraged distinguished artists of her time, including L. S. Lowry, John Nash and Henry Moore, to create lithographic prints for schools. Each artist worked to the brief given by Brenda Rawnsley : ‘I only ask that you create something suitable for children’.

Couderc studied at the École des Beaux-Arts in Montpellier and at the École des Arts Decoratifs in Paris. He was a co-founder of the École de Sète and was the curator of the Musée Paul Valery. Much of his work is of Mediterranean scenes near his home in Sète. Ships in Sète shows a Fauvist influence on his use of colour. He increasingly evolved a geometric, structured style which is shown in this print with its solid blocks of colour and hard edges to the boats and buildings.
