London Original Print Fair 2023
Thursday 30 March- Sunday 2 April

 

Andrew Edmunds (1943 - 2022)
 
 
 
It is with great sadness that we pay tribute to our friend, Andrew Edmunds, a founding committee member of the London Original Print Fair and exhibitor since the first Fair in 1985.  His peerless expertise in the field of caricature and eighteenth-century prints is irreplaceable and his knowledge of Hogarth and Gillray was second to none.  Andrew remained a loyal and enthusiastic supporter of the Print Fair throughout its 37 years, generous with both his knowledge and his champagne, which fuelled many a joyous Private View. He made countless loans of prints to exhibitions and provided wine for the regular events hosted by the British Museum Prints & Drawings department.  Andrew’s exacting standards of connoisseurship and print scholarship set an example to the art trade and collectors alike. His enthusiasm for both his favourite subjects, prints and wine, was legendary and he will be sorely missed.
 
Memorials to both these enthusiasms stand next door to one another in Lexington Street.
