One of Britain’s foremost watercolour painters, draughtsmen and printmakers, Stanley Roy Badmin (1906-1989) defined the way that Britain looked at itself for more than a generation. Chris Beetles has been the leading authority on Badmin for the last 30 years, since he published his major monograph and mounted a large-scale exhibition at his Ryder Street Gallery. This new exhibition presents over 200 unseen works, mostly from the Badmin Estate, which encompass all of the artist’s styles and approaches. It provides a new generation with the opportunity to become acquainted with this unique and quintessentially English artist.
The exhibition is accompanied by a 48-page catalogue, which contains over 100 full-colour and black & white images, a second edition of Chris Beetles’ catalogue raisonné of the prints, and a newly-researched chronology, bibliography and list of exhibitions. The catalogue is available from the gallery at £10 + p&p (+ p&p UK).
The fully illustrated biography and catalogue raisonne of etchings 'S R BADMIN AND THE ENGLISH LANDSCAPE' (published in 1985) is also available to purchase.
