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’.

Moore has been acknowledged as one of the greatest sculptors of the 20th century and as the most celebrated British artist of his time. He trained at Leeds School of Art before gaining a scholarship to the Royal College of Art. By the 1930s Moore was already recognized as the leading avant-garde sculptor in England but it was his war drawings that brought him to the attention of the British public.

His wider reputation was assured in 1948 when he won the International Sculpture Prize at the Venice Biennale and from then on came public commissions from all over the world. Moore started printmaking in 1931, and in 1958 met the master lithographer Stanley Jones at the Curwen Press with whom he continued to make prints until the end of his life in 1986.
