Scope and Content of Collection

The collection consists of work by eighteen artists who worked in the printmaking medium in Great Britain during the 1960s and '70s. All works are prints on paper and most are completely or largely abstract. The majority are screen prints, although there are also lithographs and intaglios. Many are characterized by bold blocks of color and exhibit a Pop influence. It is not known whether the works in this collection were all printed in the same studio, nor are the circumstances known under which they were donated to the Kellen Design Archives. However, many of the artists in the collection are of the same generation, knew one another, and many are frequently exhibited together. All were members of a thriving art scene in Great Britain during the 1960s and '70s, at a time when screen printing was gaining increasing acceptance as a technique for creating works of fine art, after having long been used primarily for producing commercial graphics. Includes work by David Annesley, Patrick Caulfield, Pierre Celice, Bernard Cohen, Elisabeth Frink, Patrick Heron, Gordon House, John Hoyland, Patrick Hughes, Liliane Lijn, Kim Lim, Kenneth Martin, Nicholas Monro, Tom Phillips, Patrick Procktor, William Scott, Colin Self, and William Turnbull.

Use Restrictions

To publish images of material from this collection, permission must be obtained in writing from the New School Archives. Please contact: archivist@newschool.edu.

Immediate Source of Acquisition

Accession date is unclear. A cohesive set of 56 prints was discerned by archivists in April 2009 and separated from a larger set of prints and other artwork called "Original artwork by various artists." These prints may have been part of an exhibition in New York in the late 1970s or early 1980s, but their connection to Parsons School of Design is not evident, nor is their provenance.
