Colour linocut (1958 first edition). Unusually
for Bawden a second edition of this print was done in 1970: the two are
subtly different, particularly in colouring, but the word ‘Palace’ in
the second is in white (and not black as it is here). The image is
flanked on the one side by the frivolity of the domes of the Royal
Pavilion, and on the other by the linearity of Charles Busby’s late
Regency architecture. The image, with its lights and fishing boats,
captures perfectly what are enduring sides of both formal and informal
Brighton. This print was awarded first prize in the Giles Bequest
competition 1958 for colour prints from linoleum and wood. Original
size: 53 x 144.4cm.
Size: 17 x 47cm; incl. border: 28 x 61cm
Format: Giclée Print, Limited Edition (1/950) on 310gsm thick 100% cotton rag
