Out of Print British Engraving 1946 – 1976

Duration: 7.12.1995 – 7.1.1996

Organisation: Pierides Gallery / Laiki Bank Cultural / Centre British Council


Seventy six engravings made by well-known British artists are presented in this exhibition from the unique collections of the British Council in London. Artists, such as David Hockney, Ben Nicholson, Terry Frost, Henry Moore, R.B. Kitaj and Eduardo Paolozzi give the mark of the British postwar art through their engravings.
The exhibition covers 30 years and is divided in two sections. The first section is the phase austerity (1946-1960) and the second, after 1960, the phase of prosperity during which the British printing techniques are developed due to the expansion of professional printing studios.

In addition, eight works by Terry Frost, David Hockney, Richard Hamilton, Richard Smith, Allen Jones, Patrick Caulfield and Alan Green are also exhibited.
