Garrick Palmer. Wood engraving with the landscape

February 23, 2011

For those of you who like wood engravings and nature, you will love the work of Garrick Palmer.

Born in the early 1930’s, he studied at Portsmouth College of Art and Design (1951-55)

and then at the Royal Academy til 1959. For 28 years he later taught at Winchester School of Art,

and became Head of the Foundation Dept. His work is held in many private and public collections.

He has illustrated numerous books with fine wood engravings and I’m sure has been inspirational

to many modern day Illustrators, Engravers and Designers alike.

There is a retrospective exhibition of prints and book illustrations from across Palmer’s career,

taking place 11 January – 13 March 2011 in Chichesters’ Pallant House Gallery.

Demonstrating the artist’s mastery of wood engraving and distinctive view of the English landscape.

Go… see… enjoy !
