Overview

The painter and printmaker Craigie Aitchison (1926–2009) is best known for his spare compositions and intense, luminous palette. His subject matter is equally distinctive—single flowers, Bedlington terriers, sheep, and crucifixions—rendered, as in the Italian religious icons that he so admired, in simple but powerful forms. These hallmarks are readily present in Aitchison’s prints, most of which are the legacy of his longstanding relationship with the master printers at Advanced Graphics, London. All the prints are brought together for the first time in this handsome catalogue raisonné, which also includes an introduction by Andrew Lambirth exploring the importance of printmaking in Aitchison’s career.
Andrew Lambirth is art critic for The Spectator and a long-time friend of Craigie Aitchison. His many books include Nigel Hall: Sculpture and Works on Paper and Barbara Rae: Prints.
