Artist Research – Edward Bawdon

Edward Bawdon (1903–1989), was an English illustrator who is known for his garden landscapes. His work has nice gestural marks, but sometimes lack a feeling of depth with only paler tones of colour.

I was surprised by how different Bawdon’s prints are to his paintings with much more graphic lines and bold colours. The compositions work well and evoke the industrial atmosphere of London well.
