Those who thought that they could never afford a Henry Moore,
Bridget Riley, John Piper or even David Hockney, might be surprised
to discover that it is not such a far-fetched ambition, even on a
relatively modest disposable income, thanks to the world of the
Modern British print.
It encompasses work by artists from the 20th century, starting
with the Camden Town Group and the Bloomsbury Group, and moving on
through Vorticism and pre-War luminaries such as William Nicholson
and Erics Gill and Ravilious, to post-1945 art by the likes of
Henry Moore, Barbara Hepworth, John Piper, Terry Frost and Victor
Original prints - where the artist has had a direct involvement
in the creation of the print - in their limited editions, are often
seen as the entry point into the market for new collectors of fine
art, where they can dip a toe in the water without taking the huge
plunge of investing large sums in masterworks like oil
