Edward Bawden

December 7th 2013 - May 11th 2014

This exhibition celebrates Edward Bawden's unique take on Britain and its inhabitants, both human and animal.

From wood pigeons to church spires on a wallpaper design to a village bobby in one of his historic linocuts, Bawden's closely observed depictions of British life show a wit and humour that is unique to the artist.
