John Brunsdon

John Brunsdon (1933-2014) was born  in Cheltenham. He studied at Cheltenham College of Art (1949-53) and The Royal College of Art (1955-58). John Brunsdon is one of Britain's most distinguished printmakers. All his work was individually hand etched, inked, coloured and printed in his studio in Suffolk.

He took delight in the texture and decorative qualities of etched marks and the sweeping shapes of broad colour which fuse into timeless images. He was interested in man's influence upon the landscape, the contrast between architecture and the countryside and the way in which man has sculpted the surface of the earth for his use. His work is featured in numerous private and public collections worldwide including those of The Tate Gallery, Arts Council of Great Britain, Scottish Museum of Modern Art and MOMA, New York.
