Graham Sutherland (1903-1980) was the greatest English landscape artist of the 20th century. Inspired by the etchings of Samuel Palmer, he went on to transform landscape art in this country.
Sutherland's earliest works, done while he was a student at Goldsmiths' College in the early 1920s, were images of pastoral calm. However, his early success was ended by the 1929 slump, which destroyed the market for contemporary prints.
Sutherland's work went through a transformation around this time, and his landscapes became threatening, sinister and tragic. He achieved maturity and made his first significant contribution to English landscape art with 'Pastoral' (1930) and 'The Garden' (1931).
He was not content to be merely an English artist, and in later years he strove for greatness on the international stage, not only as a landscape painter, but in portraiture and religious subjects. His studies of Somerset Maugham and Churchill brought fame and controversy, as did his tapestry for Coventry Cathedral.
Sutherland first commanded attention in etching, and this was his principal medium until 1930. Printmaking remained a vital part of his art, and a source of new ideas throughout his career.
This book was first published to accompany an exhibition of Sutherland's early etchings mounted by private dealer Gordon Cooke at The Fine Art Society, 148 New Bond Street, London. It reveals the remarkable progression Sutherland made from talented student to mature artist, creating images which changed the face of English landscape.
