Stanley Anderson RA

I missed the opening of our display of the work of Stanley Anderson in the Tennant Gallery, which shows the extraordinary technical skill of printmakers between the wars.   Trained originally as an apprentice engraver, he moved to London to study at the Royal College of Art and became a teacher at Goldsmith’s.   Travelling the continent and back streets of London, he produced dark and animated line engravings, including tramps in the National Gallery and scenes of agricultural labour, as well as occasional paintings in egg tempera.

  1. There is a web site; which illustrates most of Anderson’s printed works. Also there is a fantastic book written by Robert Meyrick and Harry Heuser which has just been published by the RA to accompany the exhibition.

    The Exhibition is excellent and it the largest exhibition of Anderson’s prints since
    the 1949 Exhibition at Cheltenham Art Gallery.
