Alistair Grant 'Mirror and Window: Brown'

An original etching with aquatint. The wooden frame and backboard are original to the etching and we think the mount has been replaced more recently.

The etching is pencil signed, titled and annotated ‘Artist’s Proof’ and has some hand finishing by the artist to give the work additional texture. The etching was exhibited at the Zwemmer Gallery and has their label verso. There is a note about the edition size which we think was limited to 25 prints only (plus artist’s proofs). The work isn’t dated but we think it is circa 1961.

About 19.2 x 23 inches image size and about 27.5 x 30 inches framed size

The work will be shipped unglazed within the UK.

The price is inclusive of delivery to Great Britain mainland. Please enquire of us for shipping costs to other destinations.

Alistair Grant, RBA, ARCA (1925-1997) was born in London but as his mother was French he spent his childhood in Etaples, Nord-Pas-de-Calais, and he returned regularly to the family home there. He taught print-making at the Royal College of Art from 1955, becoming head of the department in 1970. He was a highly influential printmaker and his work is held by the Tate Gallery, the Victoria and Albert Museum, and extensively in the Government Art Collection. During the 1950s and 1960s his work was shown frequently at the Zwemmer Gallery in London. He was a full member of the Royal Society of British Artists. Later in life his work became increasingly abstract.

I think I was always destined to have an interest in the world of Modern British Art and 20th Century design. My father wrote books on the subject in the 1970s and having grown up (literally!) surrounded by mainly 20th Century art, I began to take an interest myself in the late 1990s. My personal taste is in the work of artists such as Wlhelmina Barns-Graham, Lynn Chadwick, Alan Davie, Terry Frost, William Gear and Julian Trevelyan. In regard to furniture I collect, and sometimes deal in, pieces by designers including Poul Kjaerholm, Hans Wegner, Arne Jacobsen and Robin Day.

The RetroSixty website stocks paintings, drawings and prints mainly by 20th Century British artists and I also have a few works by continental, American and Australian artists. I established the business in 2006 and this website is focused mainly on affordable work likely to be within the budget of people starting out or upgrading a collection, as I try to keep every item priced competitively at less then £500. The prices always include shipping within mainland Great Britain, with items packed securely to a high standard, using recycled materials wherever possible, and shipped promptly. I do ship further afield and discounted prices to other locations are available on request (please see the contact form on the Hoarde Vintage website adjacent to my listings).

I also have another modern art business, www.nickwatersart.co.uk, which is hosted on www.decorativecollective.com, the sister website to the Hoarde Vintage. That website shows work for the more experienced collector and / or dealer, or indeed public collections with whom we have worked in the past. My father's business www.grantwatersfineart.co.uk is also to be found on the Decorative Collective.

I provide a condition report on each item with my listings on the Hoarde Vintage. The authenticity of each piece is guaranteed and a detailed receipt is issued on sale. If viewings of works in person is required, we are in Angmering, West Sussex, and viewings are possible, usually seven days a week, but by appointment only. Also further images of works for sale will be available on request.

I do hope you enjoy the visit to my site/s, and if I can help with anything, no matter how large or small, please feel free to ask. Thank you for looking.
