In March I too went to the David Hockney exhibition at the RA and actually took 2 photos before I was told they weren't allowed, but now I can't find them - an inspiring show; so on to the London Print Fair which I decided to go to last Friday at the last minute. I'm so glad I went, a real feast for the eyes. It was easy to walk round (unlike the Hockney) so you could spend time having a close look at prints and the people manning the stands were friendly and approachable; even though I wasn't spending £42,000 on a beautiful Sybil Andrews print!!!! I've liked her work for a few years, I had no idea how 'in' work by the artists of the Grosvenor school is.
A selection of work by Sybil Andrews and Cyril Powers.
I loved these buildings by Kristian Krokfors.
Exciting work by Paula Rego.
This porcelain piece was so clever.
This alphabet of London by Tobias Till was outstanding; imagine the hours these prints took!
I coveted the china with Eric Ravilious designs, the boat race bowl was £4,200 (just in case you see one in a junk shop!), a guy had just bought it. The Coronation mug was only £1,000.
Altogether a great day, even if it was raining when I left. On the way to King's Cross (quite glamourous now) I bought sushi for supper and relaxed with a coffee on the train. I do love my retirement!!! By the way, welcome to my new 'followers'! Do please mention my blog to your fellow artists/ friends.
