Title
Prints by eighteen British artists of the 1960s and 1970s
Extent
6 linear ft: 68 prints
Summary
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.
