Elisabeth Frink

Elisabeth Frink, Dame of the British Empire and Royal Academician, was one of The UK’s most outstanding and revered sculptors and artists. She lived from 1930 to 1993 and her works are held, amongst others, by The Tate Gallery and The Victoria and Albert museum. Many are in collections in North America. Dame Elisabeth Frink’s last work, the colossal Risen Christ, was installed at Liverpool Cathedral just one week before her death.

As a sculptress, her works often explored the nature of man and horses. Indeed three essential themes in her work have been notes as the nature of Man; the “horseness” of horses; and the divine in human form. These interests are reflected in her printmaking and those available here on Printeditions. The Green Man series, shown on these pages, were the last major artworks she produced. Amongst Elisabeth Frink’s most famous, they are considered the closest in printmaking to her sculptures.

Peter Blake

Sir Peter Blake CBE, RDE, RA, Godfather of British Pop Art and revered by artists such as Damien Hurst, was already established in creating pop culture art from ephemeral objects by the time of his participation in the sleeve design for the Beatles’ album Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band.

Blake’s first solo exhibition was in 1960 and the following year he collected the John Moores’ Junior Award for his Self Portrait with Badges. In 1969, the Beatles album artwork, showing the band standing in front of a tableau of celebrities and historical figures, won the Grammy Award for Best Album Cover. It is often said to be the best of all-time.

In the decade and a half since the turn of the century, Blake has created his most sought-after series; Sources of Pop Art I-VII. Each piece is highly acclaimed and here we offer the rarely available first two pieces in the series.
