Alistair Grant (1921-1997)

An original signed Gouache titled “Etaples Blue II” Circa 1978-80

Grant was a familiar feature of the London art scene. best known as a printmaker, his entire teaching career was spent in the printmaking department at The Royal College of Art, where he was to become Professor. He was perceived as a ground breaker in his explorations of mixed media techniques.

Grant was also a supreme colourist and painter. In the early 1980s his imagery turned to an open expressionist style, with sweeping brush marks and the introduction of new vibrant colour. He was inspired by his time on the Normandy coastline around Etaples and Le Touquet.Grant would create cyphers from the shapes and forms in the landscape, which he would offset against curtains of colour. These evoke bright or misty days, blazing skies or sunsets, beaches or harbours. These gouache paintings are descriptions of places he loved and constantly returned to.
