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’.

Feibusch left medical school to study art at Akademie der Kunst, Berlin, and then moved on to Paris and Rome (1919-25). He returned to Frankfurt and worked as a painter and muralist, becoming a refugee in London with the rise of the National Socialists in 1933. Between 1938 and 1970 he painted some forty murals for cathedrals and churches throughout England and wrote a book on the subject, Mural Painting (1946). Given his focus on religious and mythical subjects his choice of monkeys for his School Print is rather odd, although it is possibly one of the strongest images in the series.
