An Abiding Standard: The Prints of Stanley Anderson RA

Tennant Gallery and Richard Sharp Council Room

25 February – 24 May 2015

Stanley Anderson RA (1884-1966) was a key figure in the revival of line engraving in the 1920s, and is best known for his series of prints memorialising England’s vanishing rural crafts. This exhibition considers Anderson’s engravings alongside lesser-known works in a printmaking career spanning nearly half a century, including drypoints of continental market scenes, etchings of down-and-outs in 1920s London and alternative city views of construction and demolition sites.
