DescriptionA wonderful coloured etching depicting a quaint English street scene with cottages and trees. Graham Clarke is one of Britain's most popular and best-selling printmakers, and has created hundreds of images depicting English rural life.

His famous 'arched top' etchings, with which Graham Clarke established a widely successful reputation in Britain and overseas, came to public attention in 1973 when he first exhibited in London at the Royal Academy of Arts Summer Show. Examples of Clarke's work are held by Royal and public collections, including the Victoria and Albert Museum, the British Museum, and the Tate Gallery. Inscribed with the title 'Yeomans' and the print number '77/250'. Signed in pencil by the artist. On watermarked wove.

Born in 1941, printmaker Graham Clarke was educated at Beckenham Art School, and then at the Royal College of Art where he specialised in illustration and printmaking, and pursued his interest in calligraphy. With encouragement from Edward Bawden, Clarke began refining an individual aesthetic, printing traditional landscapes marked by a sense of locality and genre. Graduating in 1964, he benefited from the print boom of the decade and, with commissions from Editions Alecto and London Transport Publicity Department a promising career was launched. The publication in 1969 of his first hand-printed "livre d'artiste", Balyn and Balan won recognition from the most influential patron and connoisseur of the day, Kenneth Clark.
