Wednesday’s wood engraver …

May 6, 2015

On Monday we went to Pallant House in Chichester; in particular to see the exhibition of Leon Underwood.  Although I enjoyed his work very much, the works of the Brook Green School was simply the best!  In the years between the wars Leon opened up his home and studio in Hammersmith known was the Brook Green School, where he taught and and influenced some of the most gifted students during this time; among them was Eileen Agar (1899 – 1991)

She remembers that life drawing was the focus of Leon Underwood’s lessons and the etching here demonstrates this.  I haven’t got any books about her and those I see are very expensive, so I will have to look about for a bargain meanwhile I will look out for other examples of her work.
