Description

SPEAKER - Emma Mason

When: Sunday 4 February - 2.30pm (doors to the theatre open 45 minutes prior to the start)
Where: Ondaatje Theatre in the Works on Paper Fair

The Guinness Lithographs from 1956 and 1962 give us a wonderful insight into the social and artistic life of post war Britain. Emma Mason will talk about the Guinness Lithographs in the context of other mid-century print series, including the Contemporary Lithographs, the School Prints and the Lyons Lithographs.

​Many of the important artists of the day were involved in making lithographs for one or more of these schemes and fulfilling the aspirations of Art For All; artists such as Edward Ardizzone, Edward Bawden, Barnett Freedman, David Gentleman and John Piper.


Gallery owner and dealer Emma Mason specialises in original prints made by artists working in Britain from the post war years to the present. Her gallery, Emma Mason Prints, is based in Eastbourne in East Sussex. Emma has written several books and articles about mid-century printmakers, including Robert Tavener, Walter Hoyle, Helena Markson and most recently the Guinness Lithographs.

The talk will last approximately 1 hour
