Description

In 1925 Sybil Andrews moved to London, where she studied at the newly established Grosvenor School of Modern Art. Under her tutor, the avant-garde artist Claude Flight, she began to experiment with printmaking techniques. The result was a series of highly individual coloured linocuts, which today have given her an international reputation. Hand-printed on Japanese tissue paper, many of the linocuts reflect the machine age and urban life, but others are of rural life inspired by the artist's early years in Suffolk, and she continued to produce these scenes even after emigrating to Canada in 1947.
