Colour linocut, 1966. One in the series Nine
London Monuments commissioned by Editions Alecto in 1966. The Palace of
Westminster is, of course, where the two Houses of Parliament are
located. The building was designed by Sir Charles Barry (1795-1860) and
Augustus Welby Pugin (1812-52). Bawden perfectly captures the
magnificence of the façade, and a lamp, perhaps symbolic of illumined
debate, is centrally positioned within the print.
