"Surface Invention: Post-1945 Graphic Art"
2001-08-25 until 2001-11-04
Birmingham Museum and Art Gallery
Birmingham, , UK

Internationally-known for its collection of Pre-Raphaelite works, Birmingham also has an extensive collection of modern works on paper. This showing brings these prints and drawings together under the generic term of graphic art.

Visitors will be able to make connections with artists such as Joe Tilson, Richard Hamilton, Henry Moore and John Salt who are exhibiting in both these events. Tilson's Transparency, The Five Senses ? Taste, a stylised version of Marilyn Monroe's lips, can be seen in the Waterhall. In Surface Invention his three dimensional screenprint Rainbow Grill is on show. Hamilton also experiments with screenprinting in I'm Dreaming of a White Christmas and in the multiple Occult Witnesses(after Duchamp)on exhibition for the first time since its acquisition. John Salt extends his photo-realist style into watercolour painting in Yellow Shed II . Henry Moore, celebrated for his sculpture The Warrior, made prints throughout his life and is here represented by the Elephant Skull etching.

Further major works include Picasso's Goat's Skull, a still-life pen and wash drawing from 1951 when Picasso was creating assemblages around the goat theme, and contemporary works by Chad McCail and Ian McKeever, again on exhibition for the first time.
