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’.

Hans Tisdall studied at the Academy of Fine Arts in Munich, coming to live in London in 1930. He paralleled his work as a muralist with textile design and with teaching at Central (1941-2 and 1947-62). He also did many book jackets and illustrations, noted for their typography. German by origin, once resident in England Tisdall developed his love of the sea and boats and discovered Hastings. He made frequent trips there, although his rather bizarre School Print bears little resemblance to the tall black huts of the Sussex fishermen. His fanciful, vaguely surrealistic image left much for the children to puzzle out. (1990, Hans Tisdall: Paintings 1960-90 (exhibition catalogue), Albermarle Gallery, London).
