Dulwich Picture Gallery

Edward Bawden

23rd May 2018 - 9th September 2018

Edward Bawden (1903-89) was a master printmaker, illustrator, watercolourist and designer and is today recognised as one of the most influential artist of his generation.  Whilst he is perhaps best-known for his commercial work for companies such as Twinings and Fortnum & Mason, and his linocuts depicting everyday England, a significant body of work remains relatively unknown.

This exhibition will bring together 160 works to re-introduce Bawden as a hugely versatile artist, who effortlessly pushed the boundaries between fine and commercial art. It will be the first to show the full breadth of Bawden's artistic output, covering each of hte many disciplines he mastered over his 60 year career, as well as exploring his lesser-known achievements as a fine artist.

Dulwich Pavilion 2019: The Shortlist
