Edward Bawden and his Studio, a new exhibition showcasing the work of influential British artist and designer Edward Bawden (1903–1989)

During the eight years prior to his death in 1989, the renowned watercolourist, printmaker, illustrator, designer and former Official War Artist Edward Bawden donated the contents of his studio to Bedford. From the walls of his house, the insides of cupboards and the drawers of his plan chest came adverts for Fortnum & Mason, Ealing Comedy posters, plates for Wedgwood, letters and photographs; an entire life’s work. This new exhibition will focus on Bawden’s life in the studio, through his letters, photographs and most importantly his work.
