Details — Click to read

Published by Biennale internationale d’art de Menton and printed on watermarked Arches paper by Fernand Mourlot, Paris. Numbered 8/135. This suggests the edition detail in Tassi is incorrect?? In Tassi is suggests the edition was 300..225 on Arches; 75 on Japan paper. Condition note: unframed; the intensity of colour is amazing. Good condition, some handling wear to edges. The image was used as a seperate poster for the Menton Biennale of 1972. Sutherland had a house in Menton (from the mid ‘50’s) and contributed regularly to this event. It has been suggested that this work was a fundraiser for the event. Tassi: referenced (but not illustrated) on page 225.

The Artist

Graham Sutherland

British artist Graham Sutherland who worked with both glass and fabric to create prints and portraits. His core inspirations included religion (he designed the giant central tapestry for in the rebuild of Coventry Cathedral) and the works of Paul Nash, Samuel Palmer and Pablo Picasso. Working initially in watercolour and later oils, Sutherland spent the 1920s, 1930s and 1940s painting romantic, sometimes surreal British landscapes – one of his favourite places to paint was the Pembrokeshire coast, calling it the place he “began to learn painting”.
