Osborne Samuel Gallery


We have selected 30 prints that represents the core of our print dealing activities. These include some colour linocuts by the artists of the Grosvenor School of Modern Art in London's Pimlico district that flourished during the 1930s. Last summer the Dulwich Picture Gallery in south London presented Cutting Edge - Modernist British Printmaking, devoted to the artists of the Grosvenor School with works by Claude Flight, Sybil Andrews, Cyril Power, Lill Tschudi and their Australian contemporaries Dorrit Black, Eveline Syme and Ethel Spowers. It was a resounding success with a record 90,000 visitors during the summer.


We include also Modern British prints by Edward Bawden, CRW Nevinson, John Piper, William Scott, Keith Vaughan and Edward Wadsworth. In the contemporary field are the monumental Sleeper etchings by William Kentridge, Grayson Perry's series of Six Snapshots of Julie, a series of woodcuts with lithographic underlay, etchings by Lucian Freud and a screen-print by Bridget Riley.


We are currently presenting a major exhibition of prints: Nash and Nevinson - Impressions of War and Peace. Hopefully, if and when restrictions are lifted in the near future, we will install the show in the gallery. However, we are launching it 'virtually' with an extensive online, fully illustrated catalogue to browse through.
