Description - Albert Irvin by Mary Rose Beaumont

Albert Irvin (b. 1922) is renowned for creating energetic, colourful paintings which suggest a fresh, youthful zest. Equally vibrant are his prints, which are catalogued for the first time in this invaluable publication. Irvin came relatively late to printmaking - he did not properly explore the medium until the mid-1970s when he experimented with lithography. It was not, however, until 1980, the year which marked the beginning of his long-term relationship with Advanced Graphics London, that Irvin discovered a new outlet for his creativity through screenprinting. The resulting prints, almost exclusively produced with Advanced Graphics, consolidate and add to Irvin's rich body of work. An insightful text by Mary Rose Beaumont, which provides an in-depth discussion of the artist's printmaking career to date, complements the excellent catalogue of works, which includes first-class reproductions which reaffirm the artist's position as one of Britain's foremost printmakers.
