Andrews, Sybil – Michaelmas

Linocut (1937). Original size: 30.9 x 23.0cm. Work is often the subject of portrayal for Grosvenor School artists (see Cyril Power and Lill Tshudi particularly) but the Grosvenor School often emphasized the anonymity of their labouring figures. There’s a stylisation of form here, and no clear individuality in the depiction of the two workers, but this is deliberate. The Grosvenor School had strong democratic ideals, and an anonymity of portrayal symbolises the kind of egalitarian universality in which these artists believed.

Format: Giclée Print; Limited Edition (1/850) on 310gsm thick, 100% cotton rag. Hand-numbered and hand-embossed.

Size: Image: 36.0 x 27.0cm

Postage: All UK postage, whether for framed or unframed prints, is free of charge.
