"Monkeys and Baboons are interesting to me because they look and behave a lot like humans, but are not human. The baboon in this print has a facial expression a little bit like my husband’s when he is in a fake bad mood. I guess a Baboon in a bad mood might have a similar expression, so I’m not sure if this is really a portrait of my husband, or of a Baboon." - Francis Upritchard

School Prints    revives a groundbreaking scheme set up in the 1940s to supply original, high-quality contemporary art to primary schools. Last year, six British artists – Martin Creed, Jeremy Deller, Anthea Hamilton, Helen Marten, Haroon Mirza and Rose Wylie – were invited to create limited edition prints that were gifted to participating Wakefield schools.

In 2019, Fiona Banner, Sir Peter Blake, Francis Upritchard and Richard Wentworth created a new series of limited edition prints as part of the scheme.

All profits raised by the    series of limited edition prints    will fund an engagement programme with the participating schools, which last year reached over 1,000 pupils in our district. The prints have kindly been donated by the artists.
