The Post-War Printmakers: Exhibition and Sale

Led by a desire to popularise art and by technical improvements, the 1950s saw a dramatic revival in printmaking by a new generation of artists keen to capture everyday scenes in new forms, as well as reworking more traditional subjects such as architecture and landscape.

 

A collection of prints from across Europe has been combined with original ceramics to offer a mid-century perspective on art and design. Artists represented include Edwin La Dell, David Gentleman, Helena Markson, Henry Moore, John Piper and Valerie Thornton.

 

The exhibition will be held in the hall at Elmslie House, a unique and elegant venue close to Great Malvern station.

 

The exhibition is free and is open as follows:

Sunday 26th November: 10.30-4.30

Monday-Friday 27th November-1st December: 2-5

with late opening on Friday 1st until 8 pm

Saturday and Sunday 2nd and 3rd December: 10.30-4.30

 

Elmslie House, 8 Avenue Road, Malvern, WR14 3AG

 

The exhibition may be opened at other times by arrangement.

 

A café will be open offering light refreshments.
