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’.

Barbara Jones studied at the RCA and worked as a muralist, illustrator and writer of books. She was a major contributor to ‘Recording Britain’ and made many murals for exhibitions and ocean liners. She was particularly interested in ‘popular’ art, had a considerable personal collection, and wrote about aspects of the genre, for example fairgrounds, canals, burials. She had done a fairground for the cover of the Architectural Review (1945) and that possibly led to her school Print topic.
