The Prints of Wilhelmina Barns-Graham – A Complete Catalogue

The Prints of Wilhelmina Barns-Graham – A Complete Catalogue is the first book to provide a full account of the printmaking career of British artist Wilhelmina Barns-Graham, with particular reference to the technical innovations she pioneered while working in association with master-printers.

Wilhelmina Barns-Graham experimented with a variety of printmaking techniques, finally discovering her ideal means of expressions in screenprinting. Through partnerships with innovative printmakers, the artist experimented with new techniques and materials that allowed her to create prints which, in their intensity of colour and precision of design, have the quality almost of paintings.

Based on new research, and drawing on information contained in her numerous diaries, The Prints of Wilhelmina Barns-Graham incorporates a complete illustrated catalogue of all her known work in etching, linocut, lithography, screenprinting and monotype, from 1946 to 2007. It considers her work in relation to that of other British artists, especially those connected with the St Ives school, and examines her prints in relation to her work in other media, in particular, her paintings. This book will prove an invaluable resource for museum curators, students of British art and twentieth-century abstraction, and all those seeking to learn more about this aspect of the career of one of Britain’s most important artists of the late twentieth-century.
